Commodore Basketball Bands

Basketball Band

The Commodore Basketball Bands help create the legendary "Memorial Magic" in Memorial Gym for both Men's and Women's Basketball games. The 35 contract memberships are open to students in the "Spirit of Gold" Marching Band which is a prerequisite to play in the Basketball Band; however, any student or alumni from Vanderbilt can come and play in the ensemble as long as they attend two rehearsals. Select members will travel to the Southeastern Conference's Men's and Women's Basketball Tournament and to any other postseason games, including the NCAA Tournament. 

The band, known for it's energy and enthusiastic team support at games, performs a wide variety of music. From classic rock, current top-40, hip-hop, metal, alternative, classical,and jazz, the Commodore basketball bands add a real spark to the athletic atmosphere at Vandy. 

More information about joining the basketball band will be released during the fall semester.
