The Louisiana Showcase of Marching Bands
The Louisiana Showcase of Marching Bands State Championship was started in 1989 by Lafayette Music Company and co-sponsored by the University of
Louisiana at Lafayette.
The purpose of Showcase is to provide Louisiana's high school marching bands with an opportunity to perform and be recognized on a larger stage
as well as to provide financial support to the University and the participating bands.
With over 30 bands competing each year, Showcase is not only the largest marching band competition in the state, but also the only one that does
not charge the bands a fee to participate.
Through the Louisiana Showcase of Marching Bands, Lafayette Music Company has donated over $1,000,000 dollars to the University of Louisiana at
Lafayette Foundation, various UL music programs, and the participating bands. Six endowed scholarship funds have been set up to provide School
of Music scholarships for years to come, and to date, over 150 scholarships have been awarded to worthy applicants.
Showcase 2017 will be held November 4th.
