Since the school opened in 2000, the Kennesaw Mountain High School (KMHS) Band has become a nationally recognized music ensemble, both in Marching and Concert programs, complimented by an award-winning auxiliary Guard program. The band consists of over 150 student musicians and auxiliaries representing the Kennesaw Mountain High School cluster in west Cobb County, Georgia. The band is under the direction of David McGrath and Michael Huebner.

The band is committed to local participation in community programs, including parades and sponsorship of musical events, working frequently with peer high schools and related sponsored events. KMHS Band annually sponsors and has hosted the Kennesaw Mountain Music Invitational (KMMI), an event that invites bands throughout Southern Region to compete in a preliminary competition that serves as both a learning experience and a good precursor to larger competitive venues.
