2017 C. Phillip McIntyre Tournament of Bands


We are pleased to invite you to the 36th Tournament of Bands to be held on Saturday, October 7, 2017 at James F. Byrnes High School in Duncan, SC. Traditionally, this has been one of the largest competitions in the Carolinas. We hope you can join us for the best one yet!


The Tournament of Bands is structured to offer your band a chance to perform their best and receive valuable feedback from an experienced adjutication panel.  While a large competition overall, multiple classes are offered to allow your band to compete against similarly sized bands.


Prepare to be our guest as we enjoy many outstanding bands.  Our volunteers strive to make the day a positive experience for all bands to offer their best performance and to create an enjoyable experience for fans to celebrate the students’ hard work.
