Welcome to the Official Website for the UCSB Pep Band, also known as the Gaucho Pep Band!

The Gaucho Pep Band is a student-run organization at UC Santa Barbara. It was formed for the purpose of supporting athletic teams at UCSB, playing music, building community, and having fun. 

In the past, we have played men's and women's soccer, men's and women's basketball, men's hockey, men's lacrosse, and even a half-marathon! We can play for any UCSB sports team (club or athletics) or community event, (based on availability), just reach out to us.
