The Marching Royal Dukes is a class at JMU and members earn 2 credits each semester of participation. The band rehearses Monday-Friday 6-7:30pm at Bridgeforth Stadium. Monday rehearsals are reserved for sectionals, and Friday rehearsals are only held during game weeks or when a weekend performance is scheduled. On gamedays, the band will have a morning rehearsal prior to their pregame report time, performance, and parade to the stadium. In addition to performing at all home football games, the band will travel with the Dukes to select away games and perform at local/regional high school exhibition and community events.
