Goin' Band Association News
Thank you to everyone who joined us last night at the Lady and Red Raider basketball games! The music sounded great and the heckling was on point (as usual). Our next game is this Sunday (12/18) and we hope to see you there.
Lady Raiders vs Alcorn State
- Pre-Game Rehearsal (See below for info) – 1:30PM
- Pre-Game Food – 1:30PM
- Call Time – 2:30PM
- Tip-Off – 3:00PM
Jay Sedberry (our fearless director) spoke with most everyone last night regarding holding a rehearsal before our next game. The goal of this rehearsal is to sight-read through as much of the new music as possible before the game. We strongly recommend you attend, if you can.
The rehearsal will be held at the arena in our usual section. Enter through the media entrance (our normal doors), come on down, and join us! We’ll be finished in time for the pre-game meal.
We completely replaced our music with brand new flip folders and fresh copies for all parts. The flip folders were graciously donated by Tarpley Music.
The next time you need instrument service or new music, go visit Tarpley Music and let them know the Goin’ Band Association sent you.
Wreck ’em, Tech!
The first two games are this Wednesday and it’s a Double Header! Even if you can’t make the tip-off time for the first game, please join us as soon as you can.

Beginning this year, Texas Tech implemented a Clear Bag Policy for all athletic events. This is the same policy for the Football games this past fall. For all the details, please read http://texastech.com/sports/2016/7/6/clear-bag-policy.aspx.
Instrument cases will not be subjected to the policy, only purses and small personal bags will be checked.
In addition, Texas Tech is alerting fans of a temporary closure to the entrance and exit of the Commuter West Lot at Texas Tech Parkway and Knoxville Ave. This entrance and exit will be closed from 12/5/16 to 1/13/17 for construction.
During this temporary closure, please make sure to use the entrances and exits off of Indiana (if coming from the North) and the entrance at Indiana and 18th St (if coming from 19th or the Marsha Sharp Freeway).
We look forward to seeing everyone there! Wreck ’em, Tech!
As the students head home for the holidays, there are still several basketball games scheduled. We have been invited to form a basketball band for these holiday games once more and need your help! We don’t have any restrictions on who can join us to play at the games, other than knowing the which end of the instrument points away from you. If you can play a horn or woodwind (or bass guitar?), you are more than welcome to tag along.
Polish off your book of heckling, practice your stand tunes (stop laughing!), and head to the website below to sign up for our mailing list. We’ll be sending out more information as we get closer and need to know how to contact you.
