March Madness just wrapped up with the men’s and women’s title games. Congratulations to Villanova and UConn. It is a national phenomenon that grabs hold of sports fans as they try to determine who is win and who is out, filling out the perfect bracket, and of course always cheering for the underdog.
There is always a sense of hype and buildup for the NCAA brackets to be announced. The same could be said when we (Music for All) release the Bands of America Marching Championships band lists.
People begin to talk of who is attending what show. How many Texas bands are coming to Grand Nationals? What new schools have signed up that have never participated in Bands of America? Is there a Midwest band making the trip down south to Atlanta or San Antonio? Will there be another Hawaii band attending a Bands of America show? So many questions, but never any answers. Until now…
We are ready to announce the bands that have applied to be a part of the 2016 Bands of America Marching Championships. But remember, these are lists of ALL bands that have sent in applications, some shows may be over enrolled and include bands that will be waitlisted.
Let the debates begin, throw a dart in the dark on predictions, and most of all get excited for another fun-filled season of marching band. #boa2016 is right around the corner!
