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 frying up funnel cakes at the stadium on Friday nights 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 2013-14
Our marching show this year is called #1968 (Hashtag 1968) and includes popular music and themes from this prolific year in music. The show begins with the number-one song of 1968, "Hey Jude" by The Beatles. Quickly the opener transitions into "Dance to the Music" by Sly & the Family Stone. The Blue Devil Band then slows things down for a lyrical treatment of Simon & Garfunkel's classic "The Boxer." Our closer begins with "Magic Carpet Ride" before reprising back to the ending section of "Hey Jude," but listen carefully for other 1968 hits mixed in the ending section. We hope to see you at one of our scheduled football games or competitions!
