Concocktion Basketball Pep Band

Get ready for an exciting season of Gamecock Basketball! The Concocktion Basketball Pep Band cheers on the men’s and women’s basketball teams. Get courtside seats for every home game and travel to all post-season tournaments.

Members of the Concocktion Basketball Pep Band are made up of a pool of musicians that perform for all men’s and women’s home basketball games in Colonial Life Arena and are an integral part of the in-game atmosphere. Membership in the band is open to all students regardless of major or classification. Members are selected by audition and receive a stipend for participation. You don't have to be a member of the marching band to participate.

Members include drum set (players should be proficient in various rock, swing and Latin styles), auxiliary percussion, trumpets, trombones, baritones, horns, sousaphones and saxophones.

The Concocktion Basketball Pep Band is under the direction of assistant director of athletic bands, Jayme Taylor.
