CHENEY — With many students gone for Christmas break, Eastern Washington University is looking for guest musicians to play at this Saturday’s football playoff game.
The Eagles host Sam Houston State on Saturday in an FCS semifinal playoff game in Cheney.
Eastern needs about 100 musicians, and is asking interested people to register online.
The game will take place after students are done with finals, which means roughly half of Eastern’s 108-member band won’t be in town to play at the game, a news release from EWU said.
Guest musicians need to provide their own instruments, although Eastern has two tubas and some percussion equipment available.
Volunteers need to be able to meet at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday for a short rehearsal and instructions.
