Marching Band Invitational at East Kentwood High School October 19

KENTWOOD, Mich.-- Here is your chance to see and hear several different marching bands from around the state at the beautiful East Kentwood High School stadium.

Twenty-two bands from around the state will be performing shows in the competition on Saturday, October 19.  The evening will be capped off with an exhibition performance by the East Kentwood Marching Band. 

The public is welcome and encouraged to attend.  Admission is $7 for adults, $5 for students/seniors (62+), and children under age five are free.  The concession stand will be open and serving lots of delicious food like pizza, burgers, hot dogs, etc.  The proceeds will go to Kentwood Band & Orchestra Boosters. 

Gates open at 2 p.m., with the first band taking the field at 3 p.m.  The final exhibition by the East Kentwood High School Marching Band will begin at  9:15 p.m.  The EKHS Band's performance features the music of Motown; it's a show you don’t want to miss for less than the price of a movie.  Come to see a few bands or stay for them all;  you will not be disappointed. 

In case of lightning or hard rain, some of the performances may be moved inside to the field house.  For more information, contact Kentwood Band & Orchestra Boosters at kbob-kentwood@comcast.net.
