The Marching Yellowjackets

The Marching Yellowjackets are one of the most visible and spirited organizations on campus. We perform at a variety of events including home football games, other Graceland athletic events, and community events in Lamoni and the surrounding areas. Our group includes brass and percussion, and we regularly perform with the Graceland Gadets dance team.


The Marching Yellowjackets invite members with all levels of expereince. Even if you played in your high school concert or marching band for one year, you are welcome to join our group! During pre-season band camp, you will learn basic marching skills and a pre-game show that will begin every home football game. Two weekly rehearsals will be reserved for music sectionals and learning the half-time show. The Marching Yellowjackets perform 2 to 3 different half-time shows per season, featuring recognizable pop tunes that will get the crowd standing, singing and cheering for Graceland!

Scholarships are available to both majors and non-majors. 

If you have any questions about the Marching Yellowjackets, please contact the Director of Athletic Bands, Melinda Leoce

We hope to see you on the field!
