UCLA Alumni Band Gig Alert 02/19/2018

 
UCLA Alumni Band

February 20, 2018
 

Please see the three upcoming events detailed below as well as the other events listed on our calendar. We need to make sure we’ll have a complete band for each event so please go to our website and sign up for every event you plan to attend!
 


GYMNASTICS – vs the Oregon State University Beavers
PAULEY PAVILION

THIS Sunday, February 25 | Call Time: 1:45 pm

Oregon State University Beavers

The Alumni Band was so amazingly mind bogglingly awesome at its first two Gymnastics meets this year that the team has invited us back to play for them a third time, on February 25 against the OSU Beavers. This event does not conflict with the Super Bowl, Get Smart reruns, or the Oscars, but might conflict with TV coverage of the Olympics Closing Ceremony, which, because of the International Dateline, took place during the Super Bowl halftime show, so you can watch the tape delay of the closing ceremony on your DVR recorder which only your children can operate, which will enable you to attend the gymnastics meet. THIS EVENT IS ALREADY CONFIRMED so we have a viable band and we are looking to make it a larger viable band.

We really want to have a large band for this event. You will not miss the Olympics. THE IOC is hiding the tape of the Closing Ceremony in Joel’s gig bag so it will not be on TV until you get home unless you stop for tacos at Tito’s, which are better than the Olympics, especially with salsa.

So please bring yourselves, your friends, your friends’ friends and their friends. Everyone should enter Pauley at the “Office” door on the west side of the building, and then join us in our section on the floor.

Parking in Lot 7 will be provided by UCLA Athletics. Ask the attendant for a permit or go to one of the kiosks at Lot 8 or Lot 4 if there is no attendant present. The parking patrol will issue tickets to vehicles without permits so please do not waste next years’ dues money on a parking ticket.


ROWING - vs Stanford Cardinal and SDSU Aztecs
UCLA Boathouse | 14001 Fiji Way, Marina Del Rey
Saturday, March 3, 2018 | Call Time: 9:00 am


Crew

The UCLA Rowing team has asked the Alumni Band to provide entertainment. The Band will not be asked to play on the boats, as we might cause the boats to sink like the Titanic or wash ashore like the Minnow, or we might fall in and get wet. So, we will stand safely on the shore serenading the rowers. Donuts and coffee will be provided by the team. This will be a fun gig with lots of opportunities to play and eat breakfast and play more and eat more breakfast.

You can drop heavy instruments off at the boathouse and park at either Fisherman’s Village 13755 Fiji Way, which is a 5 minute walk from the boathouse and charges $1 for every 20 minutes of parking with a maximum of $15, or Dock 52 at 13552 Fiji Way which is a 15 minute walk but is free.

We will treat the Band to a second breakfast at a local restaurant after the meet.

Please make sure to sign up on our website so we know you’ll be there!
 



BASEBALL - vs u$¢ trojans
Dodger Stadium
Sunday, March 11 | Call Time: 1:30 pm

The Alumni Band returns for its annual pilgrimage to Dodger stadium on Sunday, March 11. Parking will not be provided by the Dodgers but the Band will reimburse all those who ask. We believe that each musician or drummer will be allowed to bring in one guest, but all the details will not be finalized until Yu Darvish finishes an inning.

Please make sure to sign up on our website so we know you’ll be there! We still need to make sure we will have a viable band so it’s important that we hear from everyone who plans to attend.
