The NY All-City Marching Band

The NYC – All City Marching Band is made up of students from public High Schools in all five boroughs of New York City. (Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx, Staten Island)
We are the official marching band of the City of New York and perform in numerous parades throughout NYC including any parade by a championship winning New York sports team. Past performances have included field shows, parades, athletic events, concerts in the park, and the All-City Music Showcase at NYU.

All rehearsal are held at the Grand Street Campus located at 850 Grand Street, Brooklyn. (15 minutes from Union Square on the L train)

Auditions for the ACMB are held each year in June.

Any student interested in the marching band experience that does not play an instrument is welcome to join the COLOR GUARD!

The color guard is a corp of dedicated students that use colorful flags, costumes, and dance moves to add visual excitement and appeal to the music the band plays.
