Alumni Pep Band
Join us for Alumni Pep Band!
Are you a UNO hockey fan? Have you been thinking about dusting off your old horn or drumsticks? Have you been hunting for a reason to meet up with UNO Band friends from yesteryear? Look no further! The UNO Bands are proud to welcome all of our alumni to join current UNO students in the “Maverick Machine” pep band in the stands at the UNO vs. Western Michigan hockey game on Saturday, February 2, 2019 at Baxter Arena!

There will be a rehearsal with the full band on January 29, 2019 in room 109 in the newly-renovated and expanded Strauss Performing Arts Center (the UNO School of Music) from 8:00 PM to 9:30 PM. Maps are linked below regarding parking and entrances to both the School of Music and Baxter Arena.
