They don't run out onto the court or the field, but they're very much part of the MDI Athletic Department and contribute to the MDI "Sport Experience" and when we mean they, we are referring to the MDI Pep Band! There's nothing like the MDI Pep Band playing Jesus Christ Superstar as the Basketball and Football Team runs out onto the court and field!

I have had numerous people come up to me when MDI plays at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor during Tourney Time, making sure that the Pep Band is coming! The MDI Pep Band is loud and proud, and the atmosphere at Bernard Parady Gymnasium is markedly different and the energy level much lower when the Pep Band isn't playing!
