Did you play in a high school
or college marching band? Remember how much fun that was? Have
you ever found yourself wishing you could relive those days? Well,
dream no longer, my musical friend ...
The Beat Goes On!
The Beat Goes On is an all-adult marching band committed to delighting Northwest and National audiences while reliving the best parts of the marching band experience. The band is known for its feel-good attitude, emphasis on audience interaction, and spontaneity on the street and on stage. Though our musical tastes are eclectic, TBGO features a high-energy, brassy, rock and roll style we may be a marching band, but we're more likely to play Lady Gaga than John Phillip Sousa! Band members hail primarily from the Pacific Northwest but come from as far away as Ohio, Florida, Arizona, and California for special events. If you are over the age of 18 and play (or used to play) a band instrument ... Come Out and Play With Us!
