Siena College Pep Band

Director:  Christopher Farrell

Student Manager: Andrew Lomaglio

Student Manager: Emma Bostian

 

The Siena College Pep Band:
The Siena College Pep Band consists of between 30- 40 Siena College students.  We are dedicated individuals that attend all the Siena College Basketball Home Games to cheer on our teams.  We travel to the MAAC Tournament and if we cheer hard enough we travel to the NCAA as well.  We are looking for dedicated musicians that enjoy playing music as much as watching college basketball.

 

When does the Siena Pep Band perform?
The Siena College Pep Band performs at all Men's and Women's Home Basketball Games, before, during, and after the Games.  The band also performs at various athletic events as well as for the Siena community.
