Kansas State Bands

Pub Crawl Band

The Pub Crawl Band is a group of students that plays in the Aggieville Business District, Poyntz Ave, and some Westside establishments on Friday nights of home football games in the Fall. We use this opportunity to pep up the crowd at local establishments in support of the Wildcats. The ensemble is a "dry" ensemble and only encourages and promotes good, clean fun!

Pub Crawl Band members receive a scholarship and a t-shirt for participating in the ensemble. Pub Crawl Band members are also fed at the conclusion of each event by an Aggieville Business District, Poyntz Ave, or Westside restaurant. Below was the route for the 2016 Pub Crawl Bands:

The K-State Pub Crawl Bands are under the direction of Dr. Frank Tracz, Dr. Alex Wimmer, Jay Koupal, Andy Tinsman, Allegra Fisher, and Eddie Shaw.

Pub Crawl Band Auditions!

Pub Crawl Bands are three separate smaller sized pep bands. As if that wasn’t good enough, YOU GET PAID AND FED!

Auditions will be held on Thursday during the week of Band Camp. Students should prepare ‘Wildcat Victory’ and ‘Wabash Cannonball’ for the audition.

If you are selected to be a member of one of these groups, you will be required to attend all functions or provide an acceptable replacement for the performance.

These groups are elite athletic and pep bands that demand the highest quality musicians!

Questions? Contact the Band Office (785-532-3816) for more information.
