Weekly Watch Guide: Bands of America 2018 - Week 5

It's Super Regional Season! We're in the home stretch for the 2018 BOA Grand Nationals as competition intensifies and groups push to clean! The Indianapolis Super Regional was first on the schedule, with St. Louis and San Antonio coming in the following weeks.

The 2018 BOA Indianapolis Super Regional were two days of some of the best bands the Midwest has to offer. Also, many groups from out of town took this as an opportunity to travel and compete against a large number of high caliber marching bands. For example, a Texas group made their way to Indy this weekend as well as Union (OK)—who took a spot at the top half in finals.

Also on the schedule this weekend were the 2018 BOA Mid-Atlantic Regional and the Northern Cali regional. This was only one of two opportunities to catch a BOA competition in California this season—although a number of California groups will go to the St. George, UT, event.
