Congratulations to the Desert Vista Thunder Marching Band for earning fourth place overall at the Bands of America (BOA) Southwest Regional competition last Saturday (third in Class AAAA for large schools). This represents the highest finish ever for an Arizona band in any BOA regional event.

Competition was in Long Beach, Calif., among 15 of the top marching bands in the Southwest, including bands from Arizona, Utah, Oregon, Nevada, Texas, and California.

The Thunder Band will give a special Parents and Community Performance on Friday, Nov. 15 at the Desert Vista football stadium at 7:45 p.m. which will last about one hour and is free to the public.

The season ends on Saturday, Nov. 16, when the band competes in the AZ State Marching Band Championship at Glendale Community College stadium. DV performs at 7:45 p.m. and the cost is $7 for adults and $5 for students and seniors (children under the age of 5 are free).
