• About

    The Blaine High School Marching Band is a competitive marching band. It is on the cutting edge of marching arts performance and is the largest and most dynamic ensemble offered by the Blaine Band Program. Every year 70+ students from grades 9-12 choose to join the BMB and commit to a history of pride and excellence at Blaine HS.

    ​Marching Band is a voluntary extra-curricular offering for band students at Blaine. Students who wish to join must register for Marching Band and must also attend summer rehearsals, band camp, evening rehearsals during the school year, and ALL scheduled performances (mandatory). Membership is open to incoming 9th-grade students as well as returning sophomores, juniors, and seniors.
