GU Pep Band Director moonlights as singer in cover band
Skip to 1:15 if you’re short on time. Trust us, it’ll be worth it.
“PROFESSIONAL, EXTREMELY TALENTED, EXCITING AND A BLAST are a few words to describe BroadSound … perfect for your wedding, Bat or Bar Mitzvah, or corporate event!”
We know what you’re thinking: “Why the hell should I care about some BroadSound?” Well, aside from being a damn entertaining cover band, it just so happens that the group is fronted by Georgetown’s own Aaron Broadus, Director of the University Pep Band.
Through his musical career, Broadus has performed with Aretha Franklin, The Temptations, Ray Charles, and Pattie Labelle, but these days he’s jamming with BroadSound, a ten piece band that specializes in “all the top dance hits from pop/ rock to hip-hop, country, jazz, reggae, and salsa,” according to the group’s YouTube video.
Although, you’ll probably recognize Broadus as the man conducting the pep band during games down at the Verizon Center, as well as at the Big East Tournament, NCAA Tournament, and the 2007 Final Four.
But Aaron, if you don’t mind us asking, why haven’t you danced during a basketball game yet?
