And to close out our Fiesta participation with a bang, the Jazz Band brought home a 6A 1st Place award. If you missed it, below is their performance.
Jazz Band’s 1st Place Performance
Your mighty John Jay Mustang Band proudly performs at the 2015 Battle of Flowers Band Festival (aka Battle of Bands).
Come out and watch the John Jay Mustang Band defend their ‘People’s Choice’ title of 2014 and see what the band will surprise us with this year! We will have a large section of 260+ Jay boosters cheering for the band. Although all of the booster tickets are sold out, some tickets are still available through the Battle of Flowers site below. As of Sunday night, there were still many reserved tickets in Section C which is two sections over from Section E where the boosters section is.
