SON Uniform Pillows & Totes

Purchase your piece of NSU history today, with the Spirit of Northwestern recycled band uniform pillows and tote bags.

Words from Bill Brent, long time Band Director and Director of Creative & Performing Arts at Northwestern State University:

"I’m so excited that we have been able to recycle the band uniforms instead of  just discarding them. What is important to remember is that these uniforms were worn by members of the “Spirit of Northwestern” for 10 years and were seen by more than 1 million people in performances. The performances were in may locations beyond Turpin Stadium and the Natchitoches Christmas Festival Parade: Superdome for performances at a Saints’ game; for the football game at TCU when the Demon’s defeated the Horn Frogs; Hattiesburg, Mississippi for the football game against, Southern Mississippi University; the London, England, New Year’s Day Parade; and this past fall in Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge and in Dallas for the SMU football game. So, when folks purchase a pillow set, they are purchasing a piece of NSU history and will be making a donation to help Northwestern continue the great traditions of the “Spirit of Northwestern” marching band."

A set includes the Jacket pillow, purple pillow with the white "N" on it,  2 smaller pillows, and the tote bag (all pictured above).

Tote Bag/Pillow Set            $98.00
Tote Bag                                  $40.00 (Includes 2 bonus arm rest pillows)
Zipper Pillow                         $35.00
