Dobyns-Bennett band wins Bands Of America Super Regional Championships

KINGSPORT — The Dobyns-Bennett High School Competition Marching Band won its first Bands of America super regional competition Saturday.

The 215-member D-B Competition Marching Band performed Saturday at the Bands Of America Super Regional Championships at Bowman Gray Stadium, Winston-Salem, N.C.

It will be headed to Indianapolis next month for a national BOA competition and to the West Coast for a New Year’s performance at the Tournament of Roses Parade.

“This was the inaugural event and first Bands of America Regional/Super Regional in North Carolina,” said Mark D. Marcus, a band parent who helps do public relations for the D-B band.

D-B finished eighth in the Bands of America Atlanta Super Regionals in 2010 and 2012.
