Welcome to the Marietta Band Association
The Marietta Band Association (MBA) provides volunteers, funding, and administrative help in support of Marietta City School's ever-expanding band program. Backed by enthusiastic band parents, business sponsors, and school district representatives, the goal of the MBA is to make sure our students have what they need to experience a rewarding band career: both musically and socially. From selling Krispy Kreme donuts on Friday mornings to stacking music stands after a concert, the MBA is here to provide whatever help is needed.
We rely on generous donations and fundraisers to provide capital for uniforms, trips, transportation to events, supplemental instructors, instruments for economically-disadvantaged students, sheet music, and more. You can show your support by submitting a tax-deductible donation!

Marching Band 2015-16
Our show this season, "Somebody to Love," follows the rollercoaster of emotions centered around the pursuit of love. We open our musical journey with Queen and a search for that perfect someone. Finding love, the deep tones and sustaining melody of Donna Summer's "I Feel Love" helps us revel in the joy along with "Happy Together." A mashup of "Hurt"and "I Will Always Love You" project the despair and sorrow of love lost or abandoned. A percussion solo represents the manic phase where many of us throw ourselves into work, hobbies, or life to avoid thinking about the pain of a breakup.
But, time heals most wounds, and as we return to the process of becoming open to love once more, we complete the circle with a reprise of "Somebody to Love."
The MBA appreciates our amazing and talented band directors: David Dover, Dan Akins, and James McDaniel, who artfully wrote and arranged the music and drill for this show!
