  1. Top Illinois Marching Band Semi-finals recap/Finalist bands

  2. BOA Grand National Championships — Nov. 12–14, 2020

    I agree. In my opinion I think it would also be pretty nice to see some of the smaller illinois bands attending different BOA shows
  3. BOA Grand National Championships — Nov. 12–14, 2020

    id probably expect lincoln way, marian, and lockport to go. theyre heavy hitters and probably want to show that

    top 5: O'Fallon, Lincoln way, Lockport, Marian, Victor J

    What are peoples opinions on the best smaller bands like 1a bands?
  6. What schools this season surprised you guys the most? what schools do you feel improved the most from last year to this year?
  7. ISU Results

    As frustrating as inequal bands are, its what makes the activity interesting. Its great watching bands of 45 people compete against bands of 250 and them being able to compete and sound just as good. The more we pay attention about size of the bands, the less we talk about the skill and the actual participants of the band. the size of the band is not what we root for, but we must root for the kids that spend their time and sacrifice to be in that band and put on a show.
  8. ISU Results

    I think what we need is a central scoring system. In Illinois, every competition scores differently, so I think in order to see how we stack up against each other, we should have a scoring system that would be the same throughout Illinois and maybe even connect the scoring system with other states as well
  9. ISU Results

    I agree.
  10. BOA St Louis Super Regional

    So how is it broken up? Are there class sizes or is it one big comp
  11. Lincoln way invitational results

    how do they decide who goes to finals? I know it is who is in first place but what about the other bands in finals that did not get first?
