SARASOTA - After a football season that went too quickly, four Suncoast bands featured in our Band of the Week series compete Saturday, November 17th, in the state championships. 

The four marching bands participating are Braden River, Lakewood Ranch, Booker, and Sarasota. They will compete with many other bands across the state in the semi-finals, hosted in Clearwater, St. Pete and Tampa, to determine which bands will go to the finals. The finals will be held at Tropicana Field.
