Havelock High School is the only high school in Havelock, North Carolina. The school has a student population of approximately 1200. The band program consists of Marching Band, Concert Band, Symphonic Band, Wind Ensemble, Jazz Band, and Winterguard. The Marching Band is the school's largest organization, boasting more about 10% of the student population with a current enrollment of 118 students.​
The Marching Rams have participated in BOA, USSBA, and TOB sanctioned events throughout the state of North Carolina and the east coast. The Marching Rams also host the annual marching competition the Crystal Coast Band Classic. Besides competing, the Marching Rams also participate in numerous community functions and serve throughout the region.  
The concert programs are also very active in the state. The Symphonic Band, Wind Ensemble, and Jazz Band participate in NCBA Eastern District Music Adjudication in the Spring. These ensembles have received consistant Excellent and Superior Ratings in these events.​ 
Our color guard program is active in WGI and AIA events as an A1 guard. Named "Panache," the indoor guard program begins once the fall season ends and students participate in many events throughout the region. This guard program supports the band in all activities including fall marching band, parades and community events/performances, and of course through the indoor program.  
Many of our students consistently earn seats in regional and state ensembles including Region Orchestra,  Region Jazz, All-District Band, All-State Band, All-State Orchestra, and All State Jazz. Our students also participate each year in the Solo and Ensemble MPA in the district. 
It is also important to the staff of HHS Bands to instill an academic mindset and a service orientated student, with a goal of well-rounded and engaged students.  Many of our students are members of the Beta Club, National Honor Society, National Technical Honor Society, Future Business Leaders of America, Future Farmers of America, members of the Student Council, or otherwise involved in the numerous service activities on campus. Students are provided opportunities to volunteer both within the band program and throughout hte community often. 
From Friday night football games to serving at the Red Cross Blood Drives, from MPA performances to mentoring at the middle schools, our students are active, engaged, and involved in both band and the community. We are the #HavelockBands!
