On Nov. 16, the Tokay High School Tiger Marching Band competed in the Northern California Band Association’s Lincoln Review of Champions in Stockton, where they won the first-place trophy in the Class 2A parade competition. Competing bands are judged on several categories, including music, showmanship, marching and maneuvering, inspection (of uniforms, personal appearance and instruments), and drum major. It has been 19 years since Tokay won first place.

Led by Drum Major Miranda Dorado, the Tokay band added new marching techniques to their formation changes, which brought extra applause and “wows” from the audience as well as impressing the judges.

The Marching Tigers have won trophies in the parade category in their class at every band review they competed in this fall. On Sept. 28, they competed in Antioch at the Delta Band Review, winning a third-place trophy. On Oct. 26, they won another third-place trophy at the Foothill Band Review in Antioch. Napa was the venue for the Vintage Band Review on Nov. 9, where the Marching Tigers’ improvements paid off with a second-place trophy.

The Tokay High Band performs in many community events annually, including performances at Barnes & Noble in Stockton and the Lodi Parade of Lights, as well as street fairs and charity events. They are directed by Rob Barnes.

    Way to go Tokay!

    The Lincoln Review has always been a challenge, especially the parade.
