Pep Band (Big Red Express)

Pep Band (Big Red Express)

Director: Douglas Bush

The Big Red Express is a group of musicians whose mission is to provide spirit and entertainment at Husker volleyball, and men's and women's basketball games during the fall and spring semesters. The Big Red Express has also performed at gymnastics, wrestling and softball events. It is the responsibility of Big Red Express members to be the ultimate fan - displaying outstanding sportsmanship, excellent musicianship, and loyalty to the teams at all times. Positions with and without scholarships are available for participating students.

Membership in Big Red Express is determined by audition. Music majors, as well as non-majors, are encouraged to try out. Auditions take place in the spring. Audition music and schedule information can be obtained from the Big Red Express website.

2020 Fall Semester Update

With the cancellation of Fall sports throughout the Big Ten, Big Red Express is also cancelled for the Fall 2020 semester. We are hopeful that Big Red Express will again be active for the Spring 2021 semester. In the meantime, we are offering a section of MUDC348D / MUEN348D / MUEN48D (zero credit) Campus Band this Fall semester (2020). For more information see MyRed or email Professor Bush.
