The National Scout Jamboree Band is now forming and is looking for scout musicians. The staff band plays at ceremonies, events, concerts, arena shows, and entertains the many thousands of scouts and visitors to the 19th National Jamboree July 19 - 28, 2017  at the Summit in West Virginia. 

Repertoire includes popular and patriotic music, marches, and pep band tunes. Scout/musicians who can double on set, guitar, bass and keyboard are needed for the 16 piece jazz band and Tower of Power style rock band.  

Scouts need to play at a high school level or better. All registered Scouts, male or female Explorers and Venture Scouts ages 16 - 25 may apply.  Adults (26 and up) may apply, however initial preference will go to youth staff. 

Cost is a bargain at $425 for youth staff. For information about the band and how to apply, please visit or email the director
