Band alumni will perform with the Court Jesters at 10 home basketball games during winter break.

They get fans out of their chairs and on their feet inside the United Supermarkets Arena on game days. The Texas Tech University Court Jesters, a group made up of student musicians, perform at both men's and women's basketball games. But when the students are away from campus during winter break, Red Raider alumni temporarily take their place to make sure the Matador Song still echoes throughout the arena.

"They love Texas Tech and that's a big part of what brings them back," Jay Sedberry, president of the Goin' Band Association, said. "They want to support Tech athletics with the rich tradition. This is their university. It's where their heart is."
