The Mustang Band functions in many different ways throughout the year. In the fall, the band exists as the Pride of the Pacific, the Mustang Marching Band. The band performs at all home football games, various parades, and pep rallies. During winter quarter, the band switches into Stadium Band mode, playing at home basketball games, pep rallies, alumni functions, and parades. Finally, during the spring quarter, the members of the Mustang Band (on a volunteer basis) form the Pep Band club and focus on recruiting. The Pep Band performs at Open House, Admitted Students Day and other events in order to generate interest in Cal Poly and to recruit new members for the next year.
Regardless of the time of year, the emphasis of Mustang Band is always school spirit and fun.
During winter quarter the Mustang Band meets Tuesday evenings, 7:10 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
During spring quarter the Mustang Pep Band meets as needed, rehearsal times are announced via email.
