We look forward to having you participate in our Tournament of Bands. We strive to make it one of the best in the Carolinas!


There will be at least six classes. They will be determined by hornline size. Class I-III will be the Silver Division and Class IV and higher will be the Gold Division. With six total classes bands will be competing against groups very close to their own size


  • First Place, Second Place, and Third Place in each class
  • Rating trophy for those not placing in the top three in their class
  • First Place Guard, Percussion, and Music in each class
  • Grand Champion for each division–Gold and Silver
  • Bands may perform for rating trophy only (please indicate this on your entry form)

Scoring Format

The Tournament of Bands will use the same score sheets as the SCBDA state contests. Like SCBDA, there will be six judges that make up the total score. In addition to the six judges, there will be a color guard and percussion judge that will give scores to determine caption winner. (The color guard and percussion judges will not factor into the total score.)
