History Of MSHS Marching Band:
The Muscle Shoals High School band program is known throughout the State of Alabama as one of the finest programs the state has to offer. The marching band has received Superior ratings every year since 1966, along with dozens of First Place, Best in Class, and Grand Champion awards. In 2001, they traveled to Atlanta, Georgia to be the first band from Alabama to compete in Bands of America (BOA). Since then, the band has been Class A Champions in Atlanta four times (2002, 2003, 2004, 2005). At Vanderbilt, the band has been awarded the Small Division Grand Championship four times (1997, 2002, 2003 and most recently in 2007). In 2005 and 2009, the band traveled to Orlando, Florida to compete in the All-Star Music Festival. There, in 2005, they were awarded Grand Champions in Parade Band, Concert Band, Concert Percussion, and Jazz Band.
During the 2007-08 season, the marching band won the Grand Champion trophy at the Dixie Pride Marching Classic and the Vanderbilt Marching Invitational and won 3rd Place in Class A at the Bands of America Atlanta Super Regional.
