MARCHING LUMBERJACKS
Marching Bands are boring. 
We are not.

We are the WORLD FAMOUS, award winning, super-duper

Humboldt State University Marching Lumberjacks!  

The only remaining, real SCATTER BAND from a public university

and the only SCATTER-MARCHING

BAND IN THE KNOWN UNIVERSE!




The Marching Lumberjacks (MLJs) take pride in being one of the only remaining student-organized and student-run organizations in college bands today.


What we feel a college band should be.


We don’t do that marching in step stuff - at least not intentionally, we don’t do latin fanfares, lame marching band competitions, and we don’t waste our time making sure everyones feet are exactly 6 inches off the ground or any other junk like that.

We’ve got jugglers, dancers, kazoo players, KEG players as well as some very talented musicians.

 In short - this AIN’T your typical college band and this sure as heck isn’t your high school band either. If you want to march, join the Army! This is college - it’s supposed to be fun!


From Seattle to San Diego, The band participates in many parades and festivals up and down the West coast. We follow our championship Jacks athletics teams wherever they go and participate in tons of local events right here in beautiful Humboldt County.

And yeah, we do weddings too.


We’ve been on TV shows, (Jay Leno, Bill Maher)  in MOVIES (The Majestic with Jim Carrey)  and have been pictured in many magazines and newspapers including the New York Times, SF Chronicle, LA Times and National Geographic. (Yes THE National Geographic! ...July ’93 go look it up)


Simply put, WE’RE FAMOUS!!!! Woo-HOOOO!


We believe in always having fun, but take our entertaining seriously! Whether it’s the students and alumni of HSU, the wonderful families and kids that line the parade routes or the masses out in Movie and TV land - We may not be the most traditional band you’ll ever see, but we love to put on a show and guarantee to make you smile.



Come check us out!

KISS OUR AXE!
