Fall Parades

Cheers to the completion of our 2016 fall parade season.With over 140 members, TBC marched along the festive streets of Niles and continued the following day to Hollister. With more than 1000 viewers, we put on a brilliant show with light-up drums and lightsabers. All of our parades went smoothly without a hitch. We hope that all of you had a fun time performing alongside your friends at the Niles and Hollister Parades. Please be sure to join us next year for an eventful fall away from school and other stressful events.

Congratulations to our newly formed Cadet Corps. At their first competitive parade, our 6th, 7th, and 8th graders took first place at the Redwood City Parade against high school groups! And also won a $500 prize! Here’s to the hard work and dedication from both the students and the instructors who volunteered their time to make everything possible!

Eternal Regiment

Tri-City Band Corps is happy to introduce our new winter guard unit, the Eternal Regiment, which will compete in the CCGC circuit in division Independent Regional A.

Winter guard branches off of color guard in the Fall season in which the fundamental techniques of flag, rifle, and sabre can be found. However, instead of performing outdoors in a parade setting, winter guards perform indoors. In addition, basic skills of dance can be seen more largely incorporated into a winter guard show.

This new unit is open to junior high and high school students who do not have a winter guard unit available to them through their own schools. Currently, the Eternal Regiment has participants from four different schools in the Tri-City area.

The Eternal Regiment is led by instructors Kiley Billock and Tifffany Ko who have over 25 years of experience between them including WGI, DCI, and NCBA color guard competitions with numerous championship placements.

Upcoming Shows:

  • Lynbrook High School - Mar 11, 2017
  • Independence HS Championships - Apr 1, 2017
