Calling all Sacramento State alumni, current students and community members! The Sacramento State Athletics Department needs your help in forming a Hornet Pep Band, starting with the 2018 season. We are looking for people who have played a band instrument to come and be a part of the Hornet Nation. Anyone with a love of Sac State is invited to come join this spirited musical group for our Hornet men's and women's basketball games. This group would not be limited playing at basketball games, we are looking to provide music for various Sacramento State and community events as well.

Our target date to begin is with the Thursday, February 1, 2018 men's basketball game at 7 p.m. in The Nest against Eastern Washington. All basketball games will be on Thursday nights and on Saturday afternoon or evenings throughout February and into the first weekend in March. There will be free admission for all band playing members and discounted tickets for family members of the band. A copy of the schedule is listed below. Please fill out the information in the Google document in the link above with your contact information, instrument and the games you are available to play at. We would like you to email us your interest and the games you will be available to play at. Please contact Will Schilling at gwschilling@hotmail.com, Yvonne Thornton at ymthornton4@gmail.com  and/or Associate Director of Athletics Markus Jennings at markus.jennings@csus.edu with any questions you may have. Music, shirts and food will be provided at the games. We do ask that the call time will be one-hour prior to the event.

For those who are drummers, please advise if you can bring and/or provide a drum set. Those who play a large instrument: baritone sax, baritone, tuba, etc., we are working on getting instruments if you do not currently own your own.
