Villanova Pep Band

The band is most visible when playing at basketball games. We play a wide variety of pep band music ranging from pop to dixieland. Traditionally, Villanova Band members have been among the most avid basketball fans at school. We provide entertainment and are an integral part of the rich tradition of Villanova basketball. We attend all home basketball games, and, thanks to the revival of the Big Five, some away games as well. We go to the Big East Tournament held in Madison Square Garden in New York every year, and, if we're lucky enough, the illustrious NCAA Tournament. Trips to these tournaments are free of charge for band members.
