Marching Pirates Alumni Reunion

Drum roll, please! It’s time to get together for an ECU Marching Pirates Alumni Reunion! Join fellow former band members for a weekend of fun, music, and football. Meet with old friends and make new ones at this special reunion.

Welcome to all our wonderful ECU Marching Pirates alumni!

We are so looking forward to having you back on campus and working with the band again this year. Your support and participation in the Marching Pirates Alumni Reunion highlights the quality of individual that this group has had throughout its history. The band members also look forward to seeing and hearing you perform with them, and I know the crowd will continue to enjoy your participation!

If you’re on the fence about coming back, I encourage you to visit the Marching Pirates Alumni Facebook Page. There you’ll see memories that have been made at past reunions and connect with fellow alumni who have been a part of making Pirate game days so special. Let’s do everything we can to make this the best alumni band reunion to date!
