Appearance Requests

Over the years, we have had multiple requests for the Chief to appear at a wedding or other special event by our fans and dedicated alumni.

Please know that while we would love to be a part of any special event, the Council of Chiefs decided long ago not to participate in these type of events.

Part of it is to keep the role of the Chief limited to a very specific reason. The other is to remove ourselves from the potential issues that would come up by our decision making on why we performed at some events and not other events. Did an alum give a lot of money? Why did they perform at a distinguished alum’s event and not mine.

We hope that you understand.

Go Illini!
