The Juneau Volunteer Marching Band
2023 Marching Band
The Juneau Volunteer Marching Band is open to all wind and percussion players, 7th grade and older. No marching experience necessary, but you must be able to walk and play your instrument. Parade marches will be Washington Post, Stars and Stripes Forever, and one more TBD.
The marching band usually gets together once a year to participate in the Juneau and Douglas 4th of July parades. In conjunction with the parades the band holds a sit-down concert in the park prior to the 4th to help get the community in the mood to celebrate.
Percussion practice - Time to sort out instruments, refresh your memory on the cadences and signals with the drum major. Watch for updates on times and location
Full Band Marching Practice - We will have music and flip folders. Bring your own lyre. Dress for the weather as we will be outside marching. Watch for updates on times and location
Our sit-down concert is Sunday July 2, 3:00pm. Bring a chair or blankets to sit on and a picnic lunch and enjoy some great band music to kick off the 4th of July activities. Conducted by TJ Hovest, band teacher at West Valley High School in Fairbanks.
