Several Grand Junction and Western Colorado high school marching bands came together to literally knock it out of the park. Take a look at eight area school marching bands performing at last night's Grand Valley Showcase at Stocker Stadium.

To say the performances were extraordinary would be a major understatement. The production value alone was unbelievable, to say nothing of the musical elements. Take a look at 78 images from the October 4, 2022 event.

Incredible Event at Stocker Stadium

There have been a number of marching band events in recent history. The October 4 presentation of the Grand Valley Showcase had one quality that separated it from the others, namely... it was dry. There was no rain to be found last night, Tuesday, October 4, 2022.

Feel Good Story of the Week

On a side note, in addition to the extraordinary music, choreography, and production, this event featured an element that should make everyone feel good. In addition to the hard-working and dedicated students, one could not help but notice the dozens of parent volunteers. Watching families working together for an event such as this was enough to brighten everyone's week.
