The JMU Marching Royal Dukes are looking forward to an exciting start to our 2021 season. We are making our plans to return to campus and field the 50th edition of the MRDs, being part of the JMU football game day experience, hosting our annual events such as the JMU Parade of Champions marching band conest and MRD Alumni Band Day, and performing for the JMU community, surrounding area, and around the region this year. We are working to make our final plans for our pre-season camp and the regular season ahead. For more information about MRD Camp (August 18-24), please visit our camp website.
