Congratulations Regional Finalists!!

The winter guard team competed at Winter Guard International's Richmond Regional. The students had an amazing day at the competition and advanced to the finals. In the finals, the team placed 6th out of 22 teams. 





We are building the very best band family ever.

Come play, meet, volunteer and make our Bands of Decatur the most amazing place ever.

We are rebuilding the volunteers back to pre-COVID to lighten the load
