The Wamego High School Red Raider Marching Band performs at home football games on Friday nights, but that is not all that we do...we compete annually at either the Central States Marching Band Festival held at Kansas State University or the Emporia State University Marching Festival in Emporia, we perform at the Kansas State Fair in Hutchinson, and the marching band is the group that takes one big performance trip every four years. The WHSMB has performed at the Marshall Field Thanksgiving Day parade in Chicago as well as at Walt Disney World and at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. If your child is enrolled in High School Band in the fall, marching band is what we do until football season ends.
