Bands of America is grateful that “Mother Nature” allowed completion of the entirety of the Preliminary Competition at the Dayton Regional and Alabama Regional. We were not as fortunate during Finals. Due to extreme weather conditions, Finals were cancelled before the performances commenced. By rule, the preliminary results became the final results of the competition.

The overriding ticketing policy for Music for All/Bands of America events is that tickets are “non- refundable.” Nevertheless, where extraordinary circumstances, like severe weather, cause the cancellation of all or a substantial portion of an event, Music for All has established refund polices for that event and offered full or partial refunds as appropriate.

Following are Music for All’s policies concerning ticket refunds for the Dayton Regional and Alabama Regional:
Cooperative Tickets (issued to bands) - No refund
Day-Pass - $9 refund

Adult Finals Ticket - $18 refund

Discount Finals Ticket - $13 refund

We request that our patrons note that the costs of the event (stadium rental, stadium personnel, judges’ fees and other expenses) were still incurred and paid by Music for All. While we have in the past invited patrons to consider foregoing any refund in support of those expense, this year Music for All invites you to, instead of requesting a refund, consider donating the value of the refund to Music for All’s hurricane and disaster relief efforts. Music for All is collecting donations this fall to help those affected by the recent natural disasters. Donations collected will be made to Heart-to-Heart International to help with their relief efforts. If you choose to donate your refund, Music for All will provide you with an acknowledgement of your charitable contribution for your tax records.

To request a refund, please send your name, address, and copy of your ticket to:
Music for All, Inc.

39 W. Jackson Place, Suite 150
Indianapolis, IN 46225

Alternatively, you may fax your request to 317.524.6200 or e-mail it to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. 
If you choose to donate the value of your ticket refund to Music for All, please indicate this in your request. Refund requests must be received by November 15, 2017 and will be processed by December 31, 2017.

Should you have any questions or concerns regarding our refund policies for the Dayton Regional or Alabama Regional event, please do not hesitate to contact us at 800.848.2263.
