DENVER, CO – The Blue Knights Drum & Bugle Corps is excited to announce the return of Jed Weeks as the organization’s Program Coordinator!

Jed Weeks was a part of the Blue Knights organization from 2010-2018, serving as Program Coordinator from  2014-2018. In 2013 he served on the design team as Audio-Visual Coordinator. From 2010-2012 he was a Brass consultant/Assistant Caption Head. Before that he was on the brass staff for the Santa Clara Vanguard from 1996-2003, serving as the brass caption head from 2002-2003.

Mr. Weeks has recently retired after 27 years as a Band Director in Texas. He was the Director of Bands at Byron  Nelson High School in Trophy Club, Texas from 2010-2022. During his time at BNHS, he was the Director of the Marching Band, Wind Ensemble, and Co-Director of the BNHS Symphony Orchestra. During the 2021-2022 school  year, the BNHS Symphony Orchestra was invited to both the Midwest Band and Orchestra Clinic in Chicago, and the  Texas Music Educators Association Convention in San Antonio to perform at both of these prestigious events in the  same school year. Previously he was the Director of Bands at Colleyville Heritage High School in Grapevine Colleyville ISD from 2004-2010.
