RIT Pep Band

Aside from my jewelry business and college work, I am the secretary of the RIT Pepband. It started my freshman year when a friend proposed the idea of a band. It formed a week later. It wasn't much to begin with, but three years later, with better organization and more members, the band is on fire! We now have 50-60 active members, compared to the average of 12 when it first started.


Now we have a full drum line, sousaphones (jumbo tubas), a sound system, sousaphone covers, trombone slide covers, and mellophones. A member of the RIT community made a video of the band that is narrated by our conductor. It's a really great video! Our conductor has a confident and motivational personality and excellent speaking skills, which are evident in the video. Check it out!

On a side note, there are no new listings today, but I'll feature an item that has long since been buried. It is another resin pendant with a twist. I used a technique called repousse to shape metal foil and filled it with colored resin. There is a clear coat on top so it is really glossy.
