"Playing in the CatBand has been an extremely rewarding experience. Not only do I get to "rock out" to some great tunes, but we have the opportunity to watch some of the best college basketball the NCAA has to offer."
The "CatBand" is a group that plays during men's and women's basketball games, as well as other events in the community to energize the Wildcat Nation!!
The CatBand is under the direction of Mr. Don Linn.
Cat Band Auditions:
2015/2016 Cat Band Auditions
Basketball Season is just right around the corner and so are Cat Band Auditions! The Cat Band Basketball Band plays for Men's and Women's Home Basketball Games. It is a great experience and a very fun group to be a part of. With this year's projected basketball success there is also a very real possibility of NCAA Tournament Travel. We will also be playing tournaments in Wichita, Kansas City, the Men's Big 12 Tournament in Kansas City, and the Big 12 Women's Tournament in Oklahoma City! The Rehearsals are just two short mini-camps in October and the band is divided into two bands of equal strength.
