Game Day Information
Alumni Band Day is tomorrow! Here’s a recap of the details you will need to know for the day.
Attire: Polo & Khaki Pants
You must wear a Pitt Band Alumni polo shirt and khaki pants to enter the stadium. The polo shirt will be worn instead of the jacket, which is a new uniform change for this year. Script Pitt Band Alumni polo shirts will be on sale for $30, Sizes are S, M, L, XL, and 2-4 XL, first come, first served. Older logo polo shirts will be on sale for $10 but are limited on sizes and styles. If you are purchasing a polo shirt, it will be available to pick up at the registration table. Golden Girls will wear their designated outfit.
It looks like the morning could be rainy, so consider bringing your 100-year jacket to stay dry. Jackets will also be on sale at the tailgate for $10. If the rain clears up, you can always store your jacket in the truck until you return from the game. If you want to layer with long sleeves for warmth, please wear navy blue or dark neutral colors. We recommend dark colored shoes, and feel free to wear a Pitt Band ball cap.
Registration 8:30-11 a.m.
Registration and tailgate starts at 8:30 a.m. at Gold Lot 2 (adjacent to W. General Robinson St, look for the large rental truck). You will sign in at the registration and pay your balance for dues and/or a polo shirt. Check and cash only. Registration will end promptly at 11 a.m., so please allow yourself enough time.
Food and beverages will be provided at the tailgate, so come hungry & thirsty!
Please remember to bring your instrument. Instrument cases can be stored on the truck throughout the game, and can be picked up as early as the third quarter. If you asked to borrow an instrument on the registration form, please bring your own mouthpiece if possible, we are extremely limited in extra brass mouthpieces.
Pre-game and halftime performance
Alumni are invited to join the band in their pregame concert at 10:30 a.m. outside of Gate A. Music for the day will include the school songs and I’m A Believer. You will receive copies of the music and a drill position for the halftime show at registration.
March into stadium at 11:30 a.m.
The Alumni Band will line up on W. General Robinson St for the Parade to Victory, stepping off 11:30 a.m. You must march in with the band to enter the stadium. Please be familiar with Heinz Field policy. Once inside the stadium, the band will be seated near the Varsity Band, so please refrain from playing your instrument in the stands.

After the game ends, join us again at the tailgate where the party continues.
