University Notes: The Villanova Band is one of the most active organizations on campus. We perform for various university functions throughout the year. We are most visible as a Pep Band at Villanova basketball games; however, we do a lot more. The Villanova Band operates as the University's Pep Band, Scramble Band, and Concert Band all in one. We have a GREAT time during the year, probably better than any other organization on campus. It is an exciting and rewarding experience that continues even after you graduate. In addition, students can join the Jazz Band regardless of whether or not they are in any of the other bands.
During the football games, the band acts as the pep band in the stands. At half-time, the band puts on a field show. The Villanova Band is anything but a traditional marching band. While a true scramble band in name only, the Villanova Band is indeed like a true scramble band in that it does scramble. However, unlike true scramble bands, administrative sensitivity prohibits show topics from being explored to their fullest
