The NAU Jacks Pep Band performs at men's and women's basketball games in the J. Walkup Skydome and Rolle Activity Center. In addition, the band usually travels to the Big Sky Tournament in March to cheer on the Lumberjacks. 

The Jacks Pep Band is adored by fans for boosting team spirit and providing excitement at Northern Arizona University athletic events. 


We encourage all NAU students to join if they play any of these instruments: flute, piccolo, clarinet, trumpet, saxophone, mellophone, trumpet, trombone, baritone, sousaphone, drum set (auditioned), or electric bass (auditioned).

Jacks Pep Band is directed by Dr. William Kinne and meets every spring semester as course number MUP 170, 270, 370, 470, 670 section 07, Instrumental Ensemble – Pep Band.

Members have the option to audition and, if selected, earn a stipend for playing in the band. Auditions will be held every November for the following semester. Contact bands@nau.edu for more information or to schedule an audition.
