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 (see the schedule below) and 2 days a week 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.

Looking forward to an incredible 2017 marching band season!

Homecoming Pictures

Looking for a present for your Marching Band student? Austin Fedewa took some amazing pictures at our homecoming game of the band during their performance. These photos offer a unique view of their marching formations.


He is offering a 16x20 unframed photograph for $40 and an 8x10 photograph for $30. If you purchase a picture, he will donate $5 for each sale back to the school.

These photos are a great way for students and parents to remember the 2017 marching band season. Photographs can be ordered at FedewaDroneServices.com.

2017 Marching Band Update

1 - We will be starting our exercise program at rehearsal tomorrow.  This will involve running 1 lap around the track and running some short distances on the field.  Please make sure your student has the appropriate shoes and clothes.  Water is needed as well.  This applies to members of the band, not sure about percussion and guard yet.

2 - For the second time, I am attaching the band camp paperwork.  Please click on the link below!



3 - I want to thank the band camp committee for their work on camp so far!  NOW WE NEED VOLUNTEERS :)  Please volunteer through Charms.  The information you need to sign up to volunteer in Charms appears at the very end of this post.

4 - Still looking for a semi driver or even a few of them.

5 - Still room for parents to volunteer to chaperone games and competitions.  Thank you to everyone who signed up!

More information:
Please take special note of the part on the missed rehearsal form where it says that all rehearsals after pre camp are required.  There is a reason for this, we have a football game shortly after pre camp and band camp.  It is very difficult to prepare the band for the game when students miss rehearsal.  Several families have turned in forms with missing rehearsals after pre camp.  These rehearsals will fall under our attendance policy as they are not excused.  We have to have the kids at practice after pre camp in order to be our best!

We are need of parents/friends of the band who can drive a semi and pull our trailer!  If you are able to help with this, please let Mr. VanderWall know!

By now, you should have made your final payment to the band boosters for the season.  Please make sure you have tracked your payment record and that your band account is up to date!  Please make checks to Hudsonville Band Boosters and mail them to PO Box 212, Hudsonville MI 49426.  Final payment was due at the end of May, please get your payments caught up if you are behind.
