There is a lot of 4A school bands I haven't seen. But as I mentioned on the 3A board so far Mooresville is the best I heard. I'm hearing schools like Scotland Co. is good. Would like hear their band. It seem like West Charlotte good as well.

Now I'm humble about our football team but as far as bands I think the best band in the 704 is on IBM drive.

Carver is the best band I have seen.  They flat out entertain.  Came over to our side on the track and had a drumline.  It was epic!

Shelby's band is remarkable as well. All 12 of them.

That's an interesting way to count from 1 to 10 lol :D

Don't think Mooresville is #1 anymore... last year just wasn't up to the usual standard. Hard for me to argue Western charlotte... they are a very nice band.

I haven't seen then in ages, but about 5 years ago, Hoke Co visited Butler for a playoff game, and the home crowd gave their band a standing ovation at halftime. It's still the only time I've ever seen something like that happen, on any level of football.

Used to be a great band back in the 90s. Huge bands and great sound. The band director now, in my opinion, is terrible and doesn't connect well with the kids at all. They win trophies, but there's no "show", only parents of the players. At halftime, Raider fans go to the concessions and bathroom. When you need speakers to make your band sound louder, it's pretty lousy.



One that no one has meniorned.... Westover. Back in the old MSEC, no one and I do mean no one left when Westover came to Richmond County. Greatest band in the conference.

High Point Andrews. They have won the state marching band competition for their size for a good number of years running and won the national title within the last 3 years for their division.

It's embarrassing honestly...don't really know what happened.  We used to have a great band.  I guess kids just lost interest in it.  Supposedly there are a lots of kids coming up from middle school that are in band so maybe one day we get above about 15 kids.

One way to look at it. At least Shelby does have a good football team. Some teams has a good band but not so good of a football team. Lol

Twenty years ago the Plymouth High School Band had a major tragedy happen. The saddest thing I've ever been involved with. News organizations from across the country covered the memorial service. The entire town shut down that day.
