KINGSPORT, TN (WJHL) -
Dobyns-Bennett High School's Marching Band has advanced to the semi-final round of the prestigious Music for All's Bands of America Grand Nationals in Indianapolis, Indiana.
More than 90 bands invited by contest organizers performed in the preliminary round of competition at Lucas Oil Field, home of the Indianapolis Colts.  Of those 90, a total of thirty bands were chosen to move on to the semi-final round Saturday.
Dobyns-Bennett High School scored in the top 30.   As of 10:30 p.m., parents told News Channel 11 they weren't aware of what time the D.B. Band would perform.
Of the 30 semi-finalists, 12 bands will advance to the final round of competition.
Participation in the B.O.A. GBOAationals is the latest in a series of honors for the D.B. Band in recent years.   Marchers have been invited to perform in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and the Presidential Inauguration Parade.  In January, Dobyns-Bennett High School's Band will march in the Rose Bowl Parade.
