The Adair County Band is rich with a tradition of excellence. Over the years, we have become the standard by which other bands aspire to reach.

Whether it be becoming a consistent state finalist, winning a record breaking number of state championships, or even winning a coveted national championship, the Adair County Band's history is revered.



The history of the band is one that we are so proud of and strive to continue every time we enter the field of competition. However, another element of our history that we are in awe of is the vast number of second and third generation marchers that we have in our band this year.

This fact is a testimony to the power of the program. Simply put, it changes lives! The strong work ethic, dedication, learning to work collaboratively, the ability to listen, learn, and modify, sacrifice, trustworthiness, leadership skills, appreciation, and organization are characteristics and skills that are an added bonus to being a member of the band.

These skills do not simply leave you upon graduation. They are forever engrained in an alumni and change their college and career choices. Therefore, it is easy to see why so many alumni parents support their childrens' decision to join band. It is remarkable that the history of our band is only becoming more enriched by the inclusion of these second and third generation marchers. It just goes without saying...it's more than a band; its a family!
