Marching Band Advances to State Contest

Duncanville Marching Band


The Duncanville High School Marching Band and High Hats will compete in the State Marching Band Contest in San Antonio next week. Duncanville is one of five bands to qualify for State from a total of 29 bands who performed during the 6A Area B competition on Saturday.


“In this past week, our students have worked so hard knowing what’s at stake: the legacy, all the effort they’ve invested all season and what this particular show means to them and the community,” said Marching Band Director Mark Teal.


This year’s show, titled ‘For All,’ is based on a patriotic theme that celebrates the diversity of our country. View the show in its entirety here.


The State competition will take place at the Alamodome in San Antonio Monday, November 5 – 7. Duncanville will compete with 6A bands in the preliminary round on Monday and finals on Tuesday.


The Duncanville High School Marching Band and High Hats were UIL State Champions in 1986, 1990 and 2002 and are one of the few bands in Texas to qualify for State multiple times since the contest was sanctioned by the University Interscholastic League (UIL) in 1983.
