When it comes to Showband, we take it seriously. Very seriously. That’s not to say we don’t have fun. In fact, for the more than 150 students who are part of Henderson State’s famed Showband—which is known as “The Showband of Arkansas”—it’s an absolute blast.
But, our reputation as one of the premier marching bands in the nation means that when you come, you’d better come to play… literally.
One of the coolest aspects about our Showband is that out of all the winds, percussions, and auxiliary members, about half are non-music majors. They’re just highly talented people from a broad range of academic disciplines who share a passion for music and a passion for all things Henderson.
Our beloved Showband regularly performs at:
- Reddie football games
- As the feature band at high school marching contests
- Pep rallies and campus events
Anyone can audition to become a part of the Henderson Showband. Learn more about this proud tradition.
