Flyer Faithful going crazy at a Christmas themed Basketball game

We are the Flyer Pep Band,

Best damn pep band in the land.

The A10 is our playground and we all think that is grand.

We came to rock the house,

So we want you and your spouse

To get up and make some noise

For all the flyer girls/boys.

Who are we?

The Flyer Pep Band is the craziest, rowdiest pep band you have ever heard. Our goal is to help our Men's and Women's basketball teams during home games and tournaments by being as loud as possible.

In other words, we're the best, and we know it.
