Since its inception in 1985, the Mt. Juliet High School Band of Gold has been rich in tradition and excellence. The program consists of concert band, marching band, winter guard, and winter drumline. The Mt. Juliet High School Concert Band continuously earns superior and excellent ratings in many State festivals. The Band of Gold continues to grow and produce award winning and nationally recognized musical and visual performances. Each year the Mt. Juliet Band of Gold has nearly 100 of the most talented students from Mt. Juliet High School take the field in performances all across the state.
In addition to the Mt. Juliet High School Marching Band, the band program combines with an award-winning and nationally recognized Winter Guard and Winter Drumline competing in the Southeastern Color Guard Circuit and Winter Guard International. New in 2016, a Winter Winds program was developed by Director Tony Cox. To no one’s surprise, all three groups finished the season as Tennessee State Champions.
The band programs operate in a three point triangle: Students, Directors & Staff, and Parents. The students are held up by a supportive directors/staff and parent organization known as the Boosters Club. We recognize the strength of our director/staff side, as well as the parent side and together we work toward the common goal of providing life-changing experiences for our students. Each side is needed to create our triangle of excellence.
The Mt. Juliet High School Band Program is deeply involved in our community. We understand our presence in working with our community leaders to help provide a city that is truly a City between the Lakes that has everything to live, shop & play.
