UCLA Alumni Band Newsletter 9/5/17


September 5, 2017

FOOTBALL vs U of Hawaii Rainbow Warriors
THIS SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 9 - Call Time: 10:30 pm

Texas A&M

Well, it was hot, but totally worth it on Sunday as the Bruins came back from a 44-10 deficit with five unanswered touchdowns (four in the 4th quarter, right in front of us!) to pull off the greatest comeback in UCLA Football history and win 45-44. And your Alumni Band sounded better than ever during the pregame and Court of Champions concerts. (We got lots of compliments throughout the day. Really!)

Come join us this Saturday for another exciting day of UCLA Football at the Rose Bowl.
Call time is 10:30am.


SHIRTSOur new Under Armour polo shirts should be available for distribution when you check in on Saturday. All paid members who perform with us will receive one free shirt, courtesy of UCLA Athletics. You must pick up your shirt in person at a performance; no shirts will be sent out to members.

PARKING – Parking at the Rose Bowl is handled by the City of Pasadena. Passes sold the day of the game will now cost $30, but you can purchase passes for Parking Lot H in advance for $25 at https://www.parkjockey.com/rose-bowl. More information about parking for UCLA Football games can be found at uclabruins.com/parking. Also, remember that parking doesn’t always run very smoothly, so please plan to come early.

DUES - All members of the Alumni Band must pay their dues before they will be given a wristband to enter the Rose Bowl. Please mail your dues and membership form to Rochelle at the address on the form, or bring them with you to the games.

HOW TO GET INTO THE ROSE BOWL WITH US FOR FREE – In addition to having paid their dues (see item immediately above), all members are also expected to play the entire pregame concert and the Court of Champions concert in order to be given your wristband for free admission to the game for yourself and your guest. Also, you must check in no later than 11:30am at the game this Saturday.

MUSIC – We have new music to hand out, and we are asking everyone to turn in all their “S” songs. To make sure you have time to get all your music organized, we suggest you come early. We handed out two new songs yesterday and will have two more songs to hand out on Saturday.

CLEAR BAG POLICY – The Rose Bowl has a Clear Bag policy. With the exception of our instruments, cases, stands, and other band equipment, everything else you bring into the stadium should be carried in an approved Clear Bag. More information on the UCLA/Rose Bowl Clear Bag policy can be found here.

FUTURE GAMES - Our next home game will be the following Saturday, September 9, against Hawaii. Call time is 10:30am.

The home game against Colorado on Saturday, September 30 will be a “White Out” game. We have very special white Alumni Band t-shirts for sale for $10 each.


POTENTIAL NEW MEMBERS – We’re always looking for new members! If you know someone who is interested in joining the Alumni Band, please contact our Membership Chair, Rebecca Panman, at membership@uclalumniband.org so she can first verify their eligibility. As a reminder, in order to join the Alumni Band, people must play a band instrument and have attended UCLA (either as an undergraduate or graduate student). This does not include people who: wear a UCLA shirt, cheer for UCLA, have visited the campus, know how to do the 8-clap, have a relative who attended UCLA, or hate u$¢.

USC GAME TICKETS – We have access to purchase tickets (in the UCLA section) for the USC game at the Coliseum on November 18. They will cost $125 each and must be ordered and paid for by September 30. See Rochelle for more information.
