The best basketball pep band in the southwest, Soundpack performs at all home Men's and Women's Lobo Basketball games in the world-famous "Pit". Soundpack adds a dimension of energy that has helped make University Arena one of the top sports venues in the United States. Soundpack also follows the basketball teams to post-season tournament play and has appeared at the NCAA Basketball Tournament in Richmond VA, Pittsburgh PA, Nashville TN, Hartford CT, Tucson AZ, Denver, CO, and St. Louis, MO.
Soundpack is comprised of wind instruments, drumset percussion and electric bass players. The band is open to all UNM students by audition only. Auditions are held in the fall and musicians will be assigned to each game. Every effort is made to accommodate scheduling requests, but it is up to each member to find a replacement if they are unable to make a scheduled game.
All members will be paid $20.00 per game up to a maximum of 40 players. The drumset and electric bass players will receive $30.00 per game to compensate for time spent hauling their equipment. All required tax forms must be on file before payment will be processed.
Soundpack provides an Athletic Band polo shirt to all members. Members will be required to provide black pants, black shoes, and a black belt. Shirts are to be tucked in. The uniform is required at all events. If a member shows up to a game without the uniform they will be unable to participate.
