The Cal Poly Mustang Band
The Mustang Band is a large group of brass, woodwind, percussion, and color guard performers that provide entertainment at
Cal Poly athletic events. Although easily recognizable in Spanos Stadium at all home football games as the 200-member strong
Pride of the Pacific Mustang Marching Band, the organization also features four stadium bands. These pep bands (at
approximately 50 members per ensemble) perform at all home volleyball matches as well as all men's and women's home basketball
The Mustang Band also performs at special functions throughout the year, including Week of Welcome activities in September,
the San Francisco Chinese New Year Parade in February, and Cal Poly's Open House weekend in April.
