LWE Basketball Pep Band
The LWE Pep Band is the spirit and energy at the Boys & Girls Home Varsity basketball games! The Pep Band is a voluntary ensemble made up of a variety of band, choir, and orchestra students. The LWE Pep Band exists primarily to support the LWE Basketball program throughout the season. This ensemble also provides students with another performance opportunity where they can relax and perform some exciting pop culture music on their instrument or even a secondary instrument.
The Pep Band plays a lot of new and popular music and brings a ton of energy and excitement to every home basketball game. In 2013, 2015, and 2019 the Pep Band was selected by the IHSA to perform at the State Boys Basketball Championships in Peoria, IL! The entire band took a trip to Peoria, rocked out in Carver Arena, and was even featured on live television!
The Pep Band starts at the conclusion of the marching season.
