Mancos is also proud of their Bluejay Pep Band that currently plays for home basketball games. Looking forward to a hopefully successful season, we hope to be able to play at future tournaments at regional and state level. The Pep Band has played for football games during the Marching Season as well. Many of the members of the Marching Band also play in the Pep Band.
