Welcome to the Hudsonville Bands Website!






Now that Marching Band season has come to an end, do you know what that means?  Yes, Winter Color Guard & Winter Drumline but it also means that Christmas will be here before you know it!

I don't know about you, but I LOVE Christmas.  The one thing I dread is the shopping and 
trying to find something the kids will use and not just put in a corner.

This year, Hudsonville Boosters came through by starting an online store where you can buy various Hudsonville Band and Hudsonville Eagle merchandise from now through November 27th with delivery being the week before Christmas in the Freshman Campus Band Room.  

If you have a Hudsonville band fan or a Hudsonville eagle's fan in your house, please take the time to look through the store to see if there is anything your special someone might want! There are a ton of great items - high quality - for adults and teens and younger kids at incredible prices!

The bonus and why I'm sharing is a percentage of all the proceeds helps support ALL the 

Hudsonville bands. (Baldwin, Riley and  Hudsonville High School).

It's just another great way to support our students, show our Hudsonville pride and finish our shopping without the crowds!

Here is the link to the store:   Hudsonville Band Online Store

The picture on the left is just some of the items we have for sale.  Most items (if not all) you can choose between the Hudsonville Band logo or the Hudsonville Eagle mascot. 

Order now before it's to late!






















Do you like to shop at Amazon?  If so, you now can help support Hudsonville Bands by shopping at Amazon Smile!  

What is AmazonSmile? AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to Hudsonville Band Boosters!

Congratulations to the Hudsonville Marching Band on a stellar performance season!   

The Hudsonville Marching Band had their first competition up in Grant, MI.  Unfortunately, their first competition started out a little wet as mother nature decided to end the drought we were having.  Instead of being able to show off Heart of the City, Hudsonville Marching Band ended up having to do a standstill in the gym where they just played their music.  

Thankfully mother nature decided to change her tune and gave us perfect weather for the Jenison Invitational and the band was finally able to show off their show to the marching band community!   Not only did they come in 3rd place, they also secured a spot in the State finals for the 2nd year in a row!   

Their next competition was in White Lake, MI at the Huron Valley Invitational where they competed against a lot of top rated bands from the east side of the state.  The band worked hard and once again mother nature wasn't the nicest as she gave us some cold, rainy weather but the band marched on and still had a successful show.  

The final showing of Heart of the City happened this past weekend at the State Finals where the Hudsonville Marching band competed against the top Division I bands in the State!   The band played their hearts out and left it all on the field and ended up coming in 11th place with a score of 85.80!

Mr. VanderWall, parents and community couldn't be more proud of these students for all they accomplished in such a short time.  Thank you all for your hard work, dedication and for representing our community the way you did!  

Even though they won't be playing their music from Heart of the City, I am happy to say you can see the Hudsonville Marching Band march one last time this year at the Hudsonville Holiday parade, November 18th at 10am.

We hope to see you there!
