Sycamore Basketball Band is open to wind players performing on one of the following instruments: Piccolo, Clarinet, Alto Sax, Tenor Sax, Trumpet, Mellophone, Trombone, Baritone, Sousaphone, and Drumset. Drumset players must audition, and be versed in several rock styles. The band will start with 3-4 rehearsals in the fall before our first games in November. For the first time, Basketball Band is a class in the fall, as well as in the spring. The Fall class version meets at the same time as the Marching Band, but won't start rehearsals until late in the Fall, so being in both groups is possible.
The Sycamore Basketball Band typically performs at 20-25 games per season, but uses a pool rotation system so no individual player performs at all games (unless they wish to). Most members perform an average of 15 games per season. Stipends are available for members of the SBB, and are decided by attendance and availability. More information will be presented at the first rehearsal in the Fall and Spring.
