Kamiak to compete at Festival of Bands | School brief

Oct 19, 2016

The Kamiak Show Band will compete in the Puget Sound Festival of Bands on Saturday, Oct. 22.

This year’s event featuring 21 high school marching bands from Washington and Utah will be held from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. at Everett Memorial Stadium.

Now in its 29th year, the Puget Sound Festival of Bands is a fundraiser for the Cascade High School Band and Color Guard boosters. It is the largest marching band competition in Puget Sound.

The Kamiak Show Band will perform its “What Dreams Are Made Of" show.

The routine includes the songs “Sweet Dreams” by Eurythmics, “Once Upon a Dream” by Lana Del Ray and the lullaby “Rock-a-bye Baby.” The show features nine doors that represent different dreams.

Preliminaries run from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and the finals run from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Award presentations will follow. Each routine lasts about eight minutes.

First-, second- and third-place trophies will be awarded, as well as several “best of” awards for percussion, drum major, color guard, music, visual and overall effect.

The competing bands will be judged on visuals, music and overall effect. A perfect performance scores 100 points.

Show tickets are $15 for adults; $9 for students, military and seniors; and $7 for youth 6-18. A family pack is $40. Children under 5 get in free. Concessions and souvenirs will be available at the stadium.

Everett Memorial Stadium is at 3802 Broadway in Everett.
