Congratulations to the only California band that made it to Bands of America Grand National Championships this year: The San Marcos High School Marching Band, from Santa Barbara, California. Though they did not make the semis, I have heard many good things about them in the BOA forums.

By the way, I have seen 15 of the 31 finalist bands this year. I wrote about the bands in my reviews of the Bands of America Super Regional Championships in San Antonio, TX, and the Bands of America Regional Regional Championships, in Indianapolis, IN. If you are interested in reading about these bands (and other bands), I have provided the links below:

Also, if you are interested in bands that I have not reviewed this year, feel free to ask me. My e-mail address is airons0678@aol.com . I know a thing or two about *most* of the bands in semi-finals. I have seen Bassett (VA), Pomona (CO), Seminole (FL) and Norwalk (CT) "live" in the past, and I have seen Plymouth-Canton Educational Park (MI), Jackson Academy (MS), Broken Arrow (OK), Tarpon Springs (FL), and Centerville (OH) on video in the past as well.

Stay tuned to the BOA website for more information.

The BOA website address is: www.bands.org

I saw some of the Texas bands at San Antonio (really liked LD Bell). If the rest of the bands are similar, or better, in quality, it should be a great competition.
