Marching Band

The marching band is a competitive ensemble that meets as a class, 5th hour, first trimester.  The marching band rehearses in the summer and 2 days a week, plus Saturdays in the fall.  On Saturdays, the marching band competes around the state of Michigan.  The band also performs at fall concerts and at home football games.


Marching band season is a busy time of year. We decided to start a dedicated Facebook group for our Marching Band families and anyone who would like follow our Marching Band where we can have our own place to post pictures/videos, ask questions, share information and just connect as a group.
  If your band student is or is going to be a part of Hudsonville Marching Band, please join our group!   Hudsonville Marching Band Facebook Group

If your student is interested in joining Hudsonville Marching band next season, please check out the video made by our very own Jr. drum major, Erin to see this years recap!

What a season our Marching Band had this year! For some of our band students it started the end of last school year when the beginners had a chance to start learning the basics of marching before school even got out.

Band camp came and everyone was finally able to get together as a whole and not only got to start learning their show and their favorite warm up... Tsunami, but started to get to know each other as well!

Football season started and with every game they were able to add a little bit more to their show and by their last game they were able to WOW the crowd when they turned the lights on their props for the first time.

Football season came to an end (which I didn't mind as it always seemed to rain at the end) and the competition season started up. 

Their first competition was at Grandville.  This was a first marching band competition for many of our band members and they marched away with a 1st place in AA with trophies for Best Drumline, Best Color Guard, Best Marching and Best Music!

Next, they went to the east side of the state for their first MCBA competition of the year and marched at a competition they will NEVER forget.. Clarkston!  They fought off the FREEZING weather & slippery field with a 6th place finish and a score of 86.725!

The final competition before State was the Lakeland competition.  Thankfully the rain stopped before we took the field and with more changes to their show the Marching Band marched their way to 4th place finish with a score of 87.475!   

Then came their biggest competition yet, STATE!   With once again more changes throughout the week, they came together and marched their best show yet!  Going into the competition they were in 9th place.  At the end of the competition they ended up moving up a spot and finished in 8th place with a score of..... 89.450!!!!   The highest score yet for Hudsonville since moving to Flight 1!  

CONGRATULATIONS on your 8th place finish at State!!   We are so proud of you!  GO BLUE!!
