Long-Running Vestal ‘Circle of Bands’ competition is Saturday

Vestal Golden Bears Marching Band will host its annual home competition, The Golden Circle of Bands, on Saturday, October 12 in Dick Hoover Stadium. Gates open at 5 p.m. and the first band takes the field at 6 p.m. Tickets are $9 at the gate. This is a New York State Field Band Conference competition.


Vestal’s Marching Band will welcome four high school bands from (in show order) Johnson City, Union-Endicott, Horseheads and Corning to the competition.


Vestal Marching Band, with Drum Majors Angelica Perez and Tabitha Briggs, takes the field after Johnson City, for this year’s show “Bounce!”


“Movement is the essence of life, and if it’s not fun, you’re not doing it right. We invite you to have some fun with us as we Spin, Lean and Bounce through our show,” reads a description from Marching Band Director Greg Harris.
