If you’ve been on the site over the past few weeks, you’ve likely noticed a new visual aesthetic rolling out. I (Tim) was ready for a refresh of the website, and am trying to add some new, unique character into competition and band pages. These changes will continue to occur during the season, and likely after. We will be adding band information this weekend and next week. We greatly apologize for the delay on this. If you do not see your band’s 2018 informationsend it in!


If you made it this far, I have a question for you? Could you provide us some website feedback? We’re looking to further improve the site, and your opinion counts! Tell Michigan Marching what YOU think!
