Mead’s Maverick Band was founded in 2009 with the opening of the new Mead High School. The band began with 32 members, all of whom were freshmen and sophomores.
Upon opening, the school set out to create a world-class band program focused on a great sound with emphasis on individual development as the means to benefit the program. Since 2009, the band has grown by 300 percent and consistently sends multiple students to All-State Concert/Symphonic Band, All-State Jazz Band, SVVSD Honor Band, Combined League Honor Band and Patriot League Honor Band.
The band has participated in the Cañon City Blossom Festival, UNC Jazz Festival, Skyline Jazz Festival, Silver Creek Festival, CU Band Day, Legend Marching Invitational, and recently had the opportunity to perform at Disneyland.
Our band strives to promote great citizenship, excellent musicianship and the highest level of camaraderie between bands.
