Welcome to the Home of the Bands of Veterans!

As one of the finest bands in middle Georgia, the Veterans Instrumental Music Department serves over 200 talented high school musicians. Located in Kathleen, Georgia the band program consists of three concert bands, percussion ensembles, jazz band, flute ensembles and the award winning Warhawk Squadron. 


We have a dedicated staff that guides and encourages our amazing students both during and after school. Our expectations are high, and our students and staff always rise to the occasion. Our supportive parent community and the Veterans Band Boosters help raise funds that support our efforts, making it possible for us to continue to provide an excellent band experience for all.  Our students truly exemplify the Veterans High School Motto, "Excellence is the Standard, not the Goal."

Marching Band:

We had a fantastically successful Spring Training this past week! Thanks to our new Leadership Team for helping to make it a success. We are very excited to begin working on our 2022 production, BEYOND THE STARS as we inch closer to Band Camp each day!


Later this week, we will send out information relative to band fee payment deadlines, Band Camp info, and other pertinent details to be aware of going into the summer. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions regarding marching band!


Finally, PLEASE REMEMBER that the first installment of the band fee is due on MAY 25! The first payment is $100, and this information was available in the Marching Band packet given to all new and returning members. This packet can be found on our band website, for your reference.


Class Band:
Students will need to bring their instruments to school for Monday.


Later this week, we will begin checking in school-owned instruments and wrapping up the year. Please be sure that students have turned in all work for this semester. Exemption status will be determined in class on Friday.


If your student uses a school-owned instrument and would like to practice over the summer, please email Mr. Mullis directly to discuss further!


Wellston Winds Community Band:
The Directors would like to invite all our band families back to the VHS Auditorium on Sunday, May 22 to hear the Wellston Winds Community Band perform their Spring Concert at 3pm! This concert is free and open to the public, and we would love to see many of our students there. If you haven’t heard the Wellston Winds before, they are comprised of many fantastic local musicians, including many band directors from our county and surrounding counties. It is sure to be a wonderful time!


Jazz Band:

Last week an email was sent with details regarding our upcoming performance at the Houston County School District Retirement Banquet. Please reference that for information regarding Thursday’s performance!


Our final rehearsal will be this Tuesday at 6:30am in the Band Room!
