About the band

The Skyhawk Basketball Band begins at the end of the fall semester and continues through March of the spring semester. Comprised of roughly thirty members, the band plays from a rotating selection of sixty diverse and outstanding charts during home basketball games in the Kathleen and Tom Elam center. Skyhawk athletic teams belong to the OVC conference. Each spring the band travels to Nashville for the OVC tournament and also travels with the team to any appearance earned in the NCAA tournament. Recent NCAA trips include Duke University in Chapel Hill, NC. and the United Center in Chicago. IL
