2018 Marching Band Season

2018 Bands Of America Grand National Championships

For the first time since 2010, I will be attending the Bands of America Grand National Championships. When I say I’m “attending”, I mean that I will be at all three days of Prelims, Semifinals, and Finals. When I went in 2010, I only went to Finals and got in on a staff pass. This time, I am a full out paying spectator and will spend more time at Lucas Oil Stadium than anywhere else in Indianapolis by far.

Since I will be at just about all of Grand Nationals, I would love to see my friends, both real life and online, if you will also be at LOS. Feel free to let me know when you’ll be at the stadium and we’ll figure out how to meet. Prelims and Semis are general admission so we can even sit together for some of the show!

If you won’t be at Grand Nationals, be sure to watch this website as well as my Facebook and Twitter feeds as I will be posting photos and updates throughout the event.

Finally, if your band is performing at Grand Nationals, let me know so I can be sure to be in the stands and cheer them on!

2018 Marching Band Season Schedule

I back off big time during marching band season, considering how busy both drum corps and indoor season get for me. I still attend a few events, however, and this year is no exception. I currently have three events on my calendar:

There are also the Bands of America events which will stream live throughout the season. You can find the schedule on the FloMarching website.
