USBands is excited to take the wraps off of 2017 fall marching band season, the 29th in the history of the largest competitive marching band organization in the nation as we lead up to National Sign-Up Day Powered by CCIS Travel on March 4, 2017.
The USBands team has been hard at work over the past several weeks balancing the availablity of top collegiate and professional stadiums with the schedules of local high school hosts, in order to provide showcases for bands across the country.
Interim Director of USBands, Jon Swengler said in announcing the first dates, "While we are in the process of finalizing details on a record number of local event hosts in 2017, we are excited to be announcing the premium event schedule over the next few weeks in a lead-up to National Sign-Up Day."
Swengler continued, "Bands and educators will continue to benefit from the top adjudicators, designers and educators serving the activity throughout the entire schedule of USBands events. Whether bands are returning for their 29th season or attending their very first event, we will have a fantastic team ready to serve them every step of the way!"
USBands is excited to announce the USBands Open Class National Championships will return to MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ on Saturday, Nov. 11. Sports for this event fill up quickly and our team will be reaching out to participants from last year to see if they would like to register early before this event is open to the public. Last year, this cap to the end of the season hosted 63 Open Class Bands from around the country.
"Nothing beats the feeling of being able to step out into MetLife Stadium and feel the incredible rush," said one student from West Windsor Plainsobo South when talking about National Championships, which happens to be the site of Super Bowl 45.
