Centerville Jazz Band


The Centerville Jazz Band (Marching Band) has been one of the outstanding bands in the country for the last 30 years. The band is a 19-time Bands of America Regional Champion, 19-time Grand National Finalist, and was the 1992 Grand National Champion.  The Band was also the 2013 Mid States Band Association Open Class Champion.

The CJB is one of the school’s largest co-curricular activities. This award winning band performs at parades, football games, community events, and band competitions and represents Centerville High School throughout the area, state and Midwest.  The CJB also plans a “Big Trip” every four years – most recently in 2014 the band performed at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL.
