Winter Break Pep Bands

Greetings from Hagle Hall!  We are approaching the end of the first semester, and therefore it’s time to open up the opportunity to play with one of our Purdue University athletic pep bands during winter break!  If you are a CURRENT Boiler Brass or GABS member, you don’t need this email; you can sign up for these games with your director.


We have six games that occur while our students are on break (3 men’s games, 3 women’s games).  The schedule is listed in the registration form, with a call time 40-50 minutes before the listed tip-off time.  Some of these games have very limited seating available, so we may not be able to accommodate every request, but we will accommodate whatever we can!


The registration link is here:  — please complete your sign-up before 8:00 AM on December 1.


Please complete your requests as soon as possible.  Selections for each game will be announced during the first full week of December, with additional information about music, attire, schedule, etc. to be distributed at that time.  You should receive an automated confirmation email within an hour of sending the form; the email address is “” so please check your spam filter if you don’t see it.  If you still have not received confirmation by the next day, email for clarification on registration status.



Thank you again for your interest in supporting Purdue Basketball – Boiler Up!
