Dear Southern Miss School of Music Alumni,


The Southern Miss School of Music and Pride of Mississippi Marching Band invite all Pride of Mississippi Alumni to the 4th annual Pride of Mississippi Alumni Band Day on November 15 & 16


This year, we are offering a special “Pride Pack” to the first 30 people to register. In your Pride Pack will be items from the USM School of Music and Alumni Association. In addition, the first 30 people will receive tickets to sit in the End Zone near the current Pride of Mississippi. There are only 30 seats available in this area so get those registration forms in! All other registrants will be seated in Section A on the home side of the stadium. Tickets in both locations are the same price

*If you are among the first 30 to register and you do not want to sit in the End Zone or you have season tickets elsewhere, please let us know on your registration form so that we can give that ticket to someone else.


The total cost of the event is $50. This includes a $24 ticket to the game (children under 2 years of age will not need a ticket), a $10 shirt, and a $16 ticket to the social event. This year our social event will take place on the USM campus in the Thad Cochran Center following Saturday’s  game at 5 p.m. A buffet of your favorite southern foods will be provided and a cash bar will be available. If you do not wish to attend the social the cost will be $34. 


We have reserved a block of rooms at the Comfort Suites, 122 Plaza Dr., Hattiesburg, MS 39402. The rate per night will be $89 but you must book by November 1. If you would like to book a room at the discounted rate please call (601)261-5555 and tell them you are part of the Pride of Mississippi Alumni. The rooms that are not booked by November 1 will be released to the public so book early! You can still book your room after that date, but the price may not be the same. 

Note: The game on Saturday is at 11 a.m. which means our day as alumni will start around 8 a.m.


Rehearsal will take place on Friday, November 15. All alumni are encouraged to attend as this is when we will go over music and field placements. A brief run through will be done Saturday before the game for those who cannot make it Friday.


We are asking that if you are planning to attend to please pay a $10 non-refundable registration fee by Friday, October 25. You can send cash or a check made out to USM Bands/NBA to:

If you will be able to attend this event, please RSVP IMMEDIATELY by sending in your $10 and a completed registration form. If you have problems opening the PDF, please send an email to





PLEASE RSVP NOW, as we must have an accurate ticket count by the Monday before (November 11th) to tell the ticket office that morning how many tickets of our reserved block we will need - THEY WILL RELEASE OUR TICKETS TO GENERAL PUBLIC SALES IF WE DO NOT HAVE THEM ALL RESERVED BY ALUMNI PARTICIPANTS, so anyone who RSVP's after November 11th at 8a.m. will have to find their own ticket to the game!!  Please spread the word and RSVP immediately!


We are looking forward to seeing our alumni and hearing the sounds of generations of Pride members together!
