As the fall basketball season approaches, UA Cossatot has announced that the college will be starting a Colts Pep Band. Members of the band will provide musical entertainment at the Colts home basketball games. The Colts Pep Band is a social, musical opportunity that is open to the general public, including UA Cossatot students, faculty and staff.

Fine Arts-Music Instructor, Dr. Laura Riddle, will be the Colts Pep Band leader and director. She has asked for people who can play musical instruments to contact her if they would like to play in the band. She is looking primarily for individuals who can play the flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, French horn, baritone, trombone, drums (set), electric guitar, bass guitar, or keyboards.  

Everyone in the pep band needs to be able to provide their own instrument and musical gear. Riddle does, however, have guitar and bass amps, and a drum set if needed.

When the Colts Pep Band members have been selected Riddle will schedule an initial meeting for everyone to attend so everyone can plan rehearsal practices.

If anyone is interested in joining the Colts Pep Band or would like to learn more information, contact Riddle at 870-584-1137 or email
