Spend A Day With Tiger Band

April 13, 2024 // LSU Baton Rouge Campus

Current high school band students in grades 10 - 12 on eligible instruments can experience the unique opportunity to perform in Tiger Stadium with the LSU Tiger Marching Band during the annual LSU Spring Football Game. This event is only open to students who play woodwind, brass, percussion instruments, or are colorguard/flag members. 


What Do I Need To Bring?

  • Wind and percussion players MUST bring their own instruments. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide instruments. Percussionists must also provide their own sticks/mallets and are allowed to bring drum stands for their instruments. 
  • Percussionists must perform on one of the following:
    • Snares
    • Tenors/quads
    • Bass
    • Cymbals
  • Colorguard members do NOT need to bring any flags or related equipment. You will be sent videos of stand dance routines to learn for the event.
  • All participants must wear an LSU t-shirt or a t-shirt in one of our school colors if an LSU t-shirt is not available. Participants must also wear closed-toed shoes. No flip-flops or sandals!
  • Music will be sent via email to participants the week before the event.
