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, and having fun. Generally, the Pep Band plays at home men's soccer, women and men's basketball, and some men's volleyball games.

The pep band meets every Wednesday at 7:00 pm in the Founder's Room (that's inside the Events Center aka the THUNDERDOME).
