Rockford Bands thanks our generous sponsors of our March to Macy’s
One of only 10 marching bands to be chosen from around the country, Rockford Marching Band is proud and excited to represent Michigan in front of more than 3.5 million people along the parade route and more than 50 million viewers on television.
Rockford Marching Band is only the third band in the State of Michigan and the very first from West Michigan to be chosen in the 91-year history of the parade.
Rockford High School Bands, under the direction of Brian Phillips, had an award-winning season in 2017. With their show, “TAO”, the 318 member Rockford Marching Band earned several 1st place and Grand Championship titles, along with many captions. They placed first at the MCBA State Finals, along with all 3 captions. They are a regular participant at the Bands of America Grand Nationals and on November 23, 2017, they will be marching in the 91st Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
