ATTENTION: Anyone who is still interested in joining our program for participation this school year, you must have inquired about membership before Friday, November 14th, at 4:00 pm. This is to insure our roster is set before the first regular season basketball game.

U of L Pep Band
The University of Louisville Pep Band has long been regarded as one of the nation's finest. Under the direction of U of L Director of Pep Bands Al Greener, the musical cheerleaders are a highly visible source of spirit at Cardinal basketball and volleyball events.

The 1981-82 edition of the Cardinal Pep Band received special recognition as the nation's best as chosen by NBC-TV analyst Al McGuire and representatives of Miller High Life, which presented the U of L music department with a $10,000 grant for the honor.
