The Huskies Pep Band (better known in some circles as the DAwGs Organization) is advised by the faculty director, Mike Christianson, and led by the executive board and an elite squad of conductors.  In addition, a greater team of section leaders, band managers, librarians, and other positions fill other important roles in the band, and have for the last forty thousand years.

The Huskies Pep Band has achieved a reputation of excellence, owing to its committed and talented team members and mentors. Brought together by a deep passion for performance and music, each bandmate brings their own unique character and sound to the College Band. Get to meet the faces behind the music.
