Your 2016 Buffalo Bandettes!

A few tidbits to pass along

First up is a little reminder about the Bandettes' game debut. The Buffalo Bandits NLL team starts off its 20th season this weekend in Calgary and after a game next weekend in Philly, return home to host the Toronto Rock at HSBC Arena on January 22nd at 7:30pm. This will be the 1st game appearance of the 2011 Buffalo Bandettes after first performing with the Jills in Toronto and then at the Bandits Open Practice on December 5th. After the game, you can use your game ticket to do away with the cover charge at the Post-game party at Pearl Street Grill and Brewery where players and Bandettes will be in attendance winding down after what we hope will be a win over Toronto.
On January 29th, Rapids Theater in Niagara Falls, NY is the only place to be as the Jills are holding their annual Comedy Show. Master hypnotist Jerry Valley is the headlining performer after having performed at the Erie County Fair for the last 10+ years. Tickets are $25 in advance through the Jills and at the door. In addition to Jerry Valley, comedian Matt Bergman will be performing. Bergman has been on Morning Bull on 103.3 The Edge and will be doing some college and club shows with James from the Edge. In addition, there will be raffles, a cash bar, and snacks available as well as entertainment from the Buffalo Jills. It's a great cause, supporting these girls who don't get paid for the vast majority of what they do, so stop out for this 7pm event. Get all the details and order tickets soon at
Finally, I'm sure there's plenty of young ladies out there who want to cheer and dance at the highest level possible, which means trying out for the Buffalo Jills. Nothing is finalized on 2011 tryouts as of yet but we will have that info as soon as it becomes available. One thing we can say is to expect tryouts to begin in April this year so that gives you more time to get in shape and maybe even review some Jills videos just to get a feel of what to expect if you do intend to tryout for the dance squad. Obviously, the tryout routine differs every year but each dance choreographer, like the Jills' Kelli W, does have a specific style of dance and if you're familiar with her style, it can help you with Jills tryouts immensely.

Following is the tryout routine from last year as demonstrated by Jills captains Christina and Omarlla. As I said, the tryout routine for 2011 will be different from this one, but this video may give you a taste of what kind of dancing to expect to learn. Stay tuned to and the Buffalo Pro Cheer Blog for further info on Jills tryouts.
