Performance Details
Our pep band gig will be at Discovery Green, the 12-acre urban greenspace in downtown Houston, just two blocks from the Four Seasons hotel. We will be performing on the large lawn for the general public; so any and all friends you may have in the southeast Texas area are invited to a free performance. This will be a stand-still performance, so we are not planning to bring in a full set of marching instruments, with the exception of mellophones and marching percussion. Any special requests regarding instruments can be addressed with the conference team leadership.
This will be a standing performance (think: a marching band in performance arcs). Chairs will be provided for anyone playing instruments that require a chair (e.g. tubas), and for those whose mobility would not provide for a standing performance of about 40 minutes. Our color guard performers will join us for five of the ten pieces, performing in front of the ensemble.

Our pep band performance attire will consist of a white collared shirt and black pants & shoes. This is to remain consistent with recent marching band performances at LGBA conferences. Specifically:
  • All white (solid), short-sleeve shirt with collar.  Can be a polo style or button-down shirt. 
  • All black long pants.
  • All black socks/stockings.
  • All black shoes.
Note: Texas weather in November can be…inconsistent.  In case the weather for the conference is chilly (by Texas standards), you may want to bring a long-sleeve shirt to wear under your white collared shirt.  That long-sleeve shirt should be of a dark color if possible.
