The Duke Alumni Band would like to invite you for food and Drink (open bar) at the Duke Alumni Band social event at the LOOP this coming Saturday Jan 7 2017 10:00 am to 12:30 pm just prior to the BC Game.

The LOOP is just down the hill from Cameron at Bryan Center.

This DUKE ALUMNI BAND social event was some time in the making but as it turns out it appears to be very timely.

The Duke Alumni Band received high praise and accolades On ESPN national TV at the GA Tech Game last night FOR BEING REALLY GOOD AND REALLY LOUD. See below.

We had about 60 players for the GA Tech game. Everyone Including us, believe the Alumni Band WAS REALLY GOOD AND REALLY LOUD on ESPN National TV.

But, If you think the Duke Alumni Band was good last night at The GA Tech game, wait till you hear the Duke Alumni Band On Saturday at the BC game.

First, we have 90 Duke Alumni Band players signed up.

This is a record and over 20 more than last night.

There will be over 20 trumpets. Hold your ears.

So we expect that on Saturday at the BC game the Duke Alumni Band WILL BE REALLY REALLY GOOD AND REALLY REALLY LOUD.

After the social event at the LOOP, the Duke Alumni Band MAY march up the hill in their jerseys with their instruments to “storm Cameron” for the BC game. If this comes to pass, it may present an EPIC and HISTORIC photo opportunity, one that may echo for a while, so we will have people with cameras there.

The Loop will remain open to the public. The LOOP’s capacity is 200, so if the band takes up 60 seats, or ¼ of the LOOP’s capacity, that still leaves ¾ of the LOOP’s capacity, or about 60 seats open to other members of the Duke community. However, if members of the Duke community attend they must pay ala carte for their food and drink.
