This year there are 4 different Commercial Bands, each comprised of a lead vocalist, lead and rhythm guitarists, bassist, drummer, and keyboardist. Members are chosen by audition each fall and placed into one of the bands. Repertoire ranges from the rock of the 60s through present day hits. The bands will perform a minimum of 4 public performances this year on campus and various venues thruoghout the region.

The Commercial Music Lab Band is an ensemble that accomodates a wide range of student experience levels in guitar, bass, drums, voice, and keyboards. No previous rock band experience is required, but students are asked to audition individually during the first two rehearsals to determine abilty and part assignment. Less experienced musicians develop reading and interpretation skills while more advanced players are given considerable opportunity to further develope their solo abilities. Varied opportunities for performance are available.
