Last Saturday, the Jackson Liberty Band traveled to Harrisburg PA to compete for the title of Atlantic Coast Champions! After a three hour drive and 25 performing bands that day, Jackson Liberty Marching Band had the highest score of 93.65 and earned the title of Atlantic Coast Champions!
This is the third and final prestigious title a band can earn while competing in the Tournament of Bands competitive circuit. In the previous weeks, they were awarded State Champions and also NY Metropolitan Region Champions! “To come home with 3 banners and hold three titles in one year is quite an accomplishment,” said band director Scott Katona. The band’s next big event will be their participation in the 6ABC Thanksgiving Day Parade where they were the only band selected to do a live mini show performance! Make sure you tune in to 6ABC on Thanksgiving Day!
