The following are LHAB standing policies related to Band Day and performance activities. They cover the following areas:

  • Uniform
  • Family and Child Guest Policy
  • Music
  • Instrument damage
  • Refunds

LHAB UNIFORM

Please remember that the official uniform for LHAB includes the following:
1. Solid black socks and solid black shoes (tennis shoes are fine as long as they are completely black)
2. Solid black pants (slacks preferred)
3. White collared shirt (either long-sleeved or short-sleeved depending on the weather and your comfort)

White collared polo shirts will be available to first-year members of LHAB free of charge. Others may purchase for a small fee.  Stop by the LHAB Swag sales on Friday night (5-7pm and 8:30-9:30pm) or Saturday (8-9am and 1-3pm) in the Music Building Hallway to pick yours up.

All LHAB members will be provided with a burnt orange vest at Band Day. You must be in full uniform to check one out (black shoes/socks/pants and white collared shirt). Please remember to return your vest before you leave campus.

FAMILY AND CHILD GUEST POLICY

If you are bringing family members to Band Day, please remember that LHAB must adhere to the following due to liability issues and UT Athletics policy:

  • Children are not allowed on the field in the Bubble during rehearsal or at any time in the stadium.  During rehearsals, children should be supervised by an adult or guardian on the sidelines or in the endzone and away from rehearsal as to not interrupt activities.
  • Children are not allowed in the band formation while marching to the stadium or returning to the Band Hall.

Thank you so much for understanding and adhering to these policies.

MUSIC

Please remember that music folders with paper copies will no longer be available on game day, so it will be helpful to print the music in advance and bring your own music with you to Band Day.  Music downloads can be accessed via the  LHAB Member Area of the website and click on the Music tab.  Music is categorized by Halftime, Traditionals, and Stand-Parade.
