The Jeppe Marimba Band only started in 2017 but has garnered much attention within the school and surrounding Jeppe community. The band has performed at a number of school and external events. They play at the annual Heritage Day celebrations, at Golf Days, at the Ruth First Memorial Concert at the Linder Auditorium and at the Sounds of Celebration Concert in 2019. In 2019 the band achieved a 1st and a 3rd place in various categories at the International Marimba and Steelpan Festival.

The 2020 marimba band features the first full group of Matrics to have gone through the band since its inception. They have created a legacy and a Jeppe Marimba Band tradition, that will live on for decades to come.
