Video+Gallery: Replays Ready – 2017 Socorro ISD Marchfest Prelims & Finals

We here at El Paso Herald-Post are proud to bring you the replays of our streaming coverage of the 2017 SISD Marchfest.

“This program is like the halftime that doesn’t end, paired with day-long qualifying similar to what you’d see at Daytona or Indy,” said Chris Babcock, long-time play-by-play announcer.

“These kids, the directors, the parents and the pit crews have been working since mid-summer for this event, with their eyes on the prize of a state championship, as a 7-year-band dad I felt the time was right to give them the spotlight they deserve.”

Babcock was joined by Lorraine Kubala, retired band director and band blogger, for the special all day event.

The finals are above, while you can check out your favorite band during the prelims via the player below.
