"The Groveport Madison High School Marching Band has been the pride of Groveport and Madison Township for many years. The Marching Band has qualified and performed at State Marching Band Finals consistently since 1991. The’ve earned Superior Ratings, the highest honor for competing bands, 20 of the last 22 years. The band currently gives 160 GMHS students the opportunity to perform and express themselves in a positive way. The band is taught to be Focused on the task at hand, Fearless of any insecurities, and Fantastic in all that they do.

The band supports The Stowe Mission, a food pantry dedicated to feeding the needy of Central Ohio. The Director of Bands has instilled into our young people how important it is to give back to the community. The kids collect food items at their many concerts, and the kids get to take it to the food bank personally. This is becoming a program close to the hearts of many band students. The band supports various school community events such as the 4th of July parade and the Cardinal Health 5K. The band students give several concerts throughout the year. The Marching Band is a competition band that travels to several locations to compete in the fall. They perform for all the GMHS football games and several basketball games. The students also give their time to work in the concessions booth for volleyball, wrestling, and basketball games."
