Join the Macomb Bomber Band as they start the 2018 marching season. Band camp began in early August, adding many new faces with incoming freshman. Through the dedication of the staff and students, continual progress is being made on “Other Worlds”, their field show for this season.
You can see them perform at all MHS home football games this season, starting Friday, August 31. They will also perform at the following marching band competitions: Morton (September 15), Limestone (October 6), Illinois State University and Western Illinois University (both October 20). The band wraps up the marching season with a performance at the conclusion of the Macomb Bands Chili Supper on October 22.

Macomb, IL – The Macomb High School Band is doing something this year to include more of the community. On the morning of Saturday, August 26th, the drumline and color guard will perform short marching demonstrations in three (3) different neighborhoods (E. Piper / E. Washington, Meadowbrook, and S. Johnson / S. Randolph) in Macomb, between 9:45 a.m.- 12:00 p.m. Parent volunteers will accompany student teams along the parade routes collecting donations as the drumline and color guard perform. These donations will be tabulated and the “winning neighborhood” will receive a personalized parade from the entire band and color guard through their streets at 3:30 p.m. on September 9th. That evening at 5:00 p.m., to say thank you for your support, the entire community is invited to our first field show performance of the year at the Courthouse Square.
All money collected will be used for the replacement of instruments and supplies. Band Director Doug Mattsey is excited for the event. “This is a wonderful start to the school year, band students have been practicing nearly daily since early August. This event is a way for them to play new music, wear their uniforms, and reach out to the community!”
Future performance dates and more information can be found on the Macomb Bands website at www.macombbands.org
The schedule is as follows:
9:45 a.m. Demonstration and collection begins at E. Piper/E. Washington
