Bucyrus XBand competing Saturday at rock hall of fame in Cleveland

BUCYRUS  – The Bucyrus High School XBand is making final preparations for a special performance at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum on Saturday evening in the 21st annual Tri-C High School Rock Off. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. and the first band takes the stage at 6:30 p.m.

The XBand is one of 41 bands from Ohio, New York, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island competing for this year’s grand prize of more than $2,000. The competition began Jan. 30, and three bands from each of the four preliminary rounds will be chosen to perform again Feb 25 at 5:00 p.m. during The Final Exam.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for our students to perform on a big stage and compete against other high quality high school musicians,” said director of bands Mark Fiske. “The students and I are very excited for this opportunity, and we can’t wait to show everyone the awesome musical talents at Bucyrus High School.”
