Welcome Southerners!

Greetings from Dr. B

Hello Marching Southerners!

I am so excited about our 2018 season. It is going to be such an incredible year. We are anticipating an exciting football season as well as an epic trip to Rome, Italy. Get more information on the Rome, Italy trip here.

We are in preparations for the 2018 Southerners Production, “When I think of Home”. This show will be a soundtrack for the memories of every Marching Southerners member and fan, past and present, young and old. It is going to be a year that you will never forget!

I offer a sincere welcome to everyone who will be joining the Marching Southerners for the first time. You are about to embark on a life-changing experience. You will find Southerners band camp to be one of the most enjoyable band camps you have ever experienced. The atmosphere is very positive and we accomplish a great deal every day. As you prepare for camp, try to stay in good shape and eat as healthy as possible over the summer months.

Everyone (including vets) MUST register and attend band camp if you plan to audition for The Marching Southerners. We will be using the registration numbers as a guide for how many spots we should include in the drill. If you plan to attend band camp and want to audition for the band, you must register prior to July 1, 2018. Anyone registering after July 1, 2018 will be given lowest priority when considering people for the positions. You can register for camp online here. Please read the “Things to Know” section of the newsletter for information on camp dates, schedules, housing, fees, meals, etc.

The 2018 Southerners Rookie Camp will begin on Friday, Aug. 3, 2018, and the FULL Marching Southerners Band Camp begins on Sunday, Aug. 5, 2018.

Last but not least, if you are marching drum corps this summer, you must arrive at camp by the 1:30 p.m. rehearsal on Monday, Aug. 13, 2018. (For more information see the “Things to Know” section of this newsletter).

Everyone, please complete and submit the online band camp registration form today, and be sure to download and memorize our traditional stand and pre-game music here!

Have a great summer! I can’t wait to see you all at camp!

Blow Southerners!
Dr. B

From the Colorguard Coordinator - Mr. Rodney Bailey

Hello everyone! I hope this message finds you well.

It is such an exciting time to be a Southerners Colorguard Member! We have so many great things in store for the 2018 season.

Auditions for 2018 season will be held on May 18-19. If you are unable to attend these dates, a make-up audition will be held on June 2. Auditions will be held at Stephenson Hall. Please visit our Southerners Colorguard Audition page for more information.

If you are an incoming freshman and are selected for the guard, you might want to sign up for an early orientation. That way, the chances of you receiving your first choice of classes are greater.

I cannot express to you how excited we are about the 2018 edition of the JSU Marching Southerners! The flags and uniforms have already been designed and we are now in the final stages of mapping out the visual program. The only thing missing is YOU!

If you have any questions about orientation or any colorguard-related material, please feel free to contact me at or visit the JSU Colorguard website.
