UCLA Alumni Band Gig Alert 02/25/2018

 
UCLA Alumni Band

February 25, 2018

Please see the three upcoming events detailed below as well as the other events listed on our calendar. We need to make sure we’ll have a complete band for each event so please go to our website and sign up for every event you plan to attend!
 


ROWING - vs Stanford Cardinal and SDSU Aztecs
UCLA Boathouse | 14001 Fiji Way, Marina Del Rey
This Saturday, March 3, 2018 | Call Time: 9:00 am


Crew

The UCLA Rowing team has asked the Alumni Band to provide entertainment. The Band will not be asked to play on the boats, as we might cause the boats to sink like the Titanic or wash ashore like the Minnow, or we might fall in and get wet. So, we will stand safely on the shore serenading the rowers. Donuts and coffee will be provided by the team. This will be a fun gig with lots of opportunities to play and eat breakfast and play more and eat more breakfast.

You can drop heavy instruments off at the boathouse and park at either Fisherman’s Village 13755 Fiji Way, which is a 5 minute walk from the boathouse and charges $1 for every 20 minutes of parking with a maximum of $15, or Dock 52 at 13552 Fiji Way which is a 15 minute walk but is free.

We will treat the Band to a second breakfast at a local restaurant after the meet.

Please make sure to sign up on our website so we know you’ll be there!
 



BASEBALL - vs u$¢ trojans
Dodger Stadium
Sunday, March 11 | Call Time: 1:30 pm

The Alumni Band returns for its annual pilgrimage to Dodger Stadium on Sunday, March 11. Parking will not be provided by the Dodgers but the Band will reimburse all those who ask. We have enough tickets for each band member to bring one guest for free, but everyone (meaning both band members as well as guests) must have an actual ticket in order to get in. Tickets will be handed out at the Rowing event on March 3 (if we get them in time) or will be emailed as soon as we get them.

Please make sure to sign up on our website so we know you’ll be there! We still need to make sure we will have a viable band so it’s important that we hear from everyone who plans to attend.
 



GYMNASTICS - vs San Jose State
PAULEY PAVILION
Tuesday, March 13 | Call Time: 6:00 pm

Our gymnastics team really, really, really wants us to try to get a band together for their final meet of the year, on Tuesday night, March 13. (Our call time would be 6:00pm, and we’ll probably start playing around 6:30pm.) It’s going to be Senior Night, and we received a special request from one of our outstanding senior gymnasts, Christine Peng-Peng Lee:

Peng-Peng LeeHi Joel,

I just wanted to reach out and say how much I've enjoyed the alumni band at our UCLA gymnastics meets. You all have changed my experience of collegiate gymnastics and inspire me each time to continue to bring music to people's lives. I would love to request one last home meet with you guys for our senior night!!! What do you think?

Peng

 

Please email Joel (jfierberg@ucla.edu) or sign up on our website ASAP to let us know if you can join us at this last meet of the year. Parking will be provided by Athletics and the Alumni Band will provide dinner.

We still need to make sure we will have a viable band so it’s important that we hear from everyone who plans to attend.

We’ll make our final decision (and will let everyone know what it is) by Sunday, March 4.
