Pep Bands

The pep bands at KU are an integral part of the dynamic experience at Women’s Volleyball games and Men’s and Women’s Basketball games. All pep bands are comprised of members of the Marching Jayhawks.

The Volleyball Band is volunteer group that is active during the fall volleyball season, and supports the team at home games in the Horejsi Family Athletics Center on the KU campus.

Auditions for the Men’s and Women’s Basketball Bands are held in September. The bands are a dynamic presence in historic Allen Fieldhouse, considered by many to contain the finest college basketball atmosphere in the country! In addition, the bands travel to post season tournaments for the Big 12 and NCAA.
