The Liberty University Spirit Band is the “pep band” for Liberty University, performing primarily at home basketball games and postseason play. Performances for other sports may include: hockey, lacrosse, and volleyball. The ensemble rehearses Sunday evenings from November through March. The Spirit Band performs a wide variety of musical selections before large public audiences in attendance at athletic events as well as radio and television audience. This ensemble travels with the basketball teams during postseason play, which involve fun trips where the members make lifetime memories.
The membership is comprised of approximately 30 auditioned Liberty University students, led by Mr. Tommy Goddard. Placement for all positions is considered open and is not necessarily dependent on prior-year membership. Tuition-based scholarships are available for all participants and are applied to Spring semester financial aid. Since post-season play is important for supporting the basketball teams, Wind Symphony tour and LUID performances conflict with this requirement, therefore Wind Symphony and LUID members are not eligible to be in the Spirit Band.
