The Blaine Marching Bengals are a competitive field show marching band. We compete in various competitions around Minnesota and have competed at Youth in Music at US Bank Stadium. The BMB have traveled to the Bands of America competition in Iowa in 2022, and have even gone as far as marched the parade in Disney World in 2009.
Marching Band is a place where we can combine our musicality and our athleticism into comprehensive performances. The band is non-audition, except for drumline, and accepts members across a variety of instruments.
We march the following instruments: Flute, Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, Tenor Saxophone, Baritone Saxophone, Mellophone (marching french horn), Trumpet, Trombone, Baritone, Tuba, Marching Snare, Tenor Drums, and Marching Bass Drums. For our competitive Fall section, we add mallet percussion like Xylophones, Marimbas, Vibraphones, and other concert percussion.
