  1. I may be a little biased because I’m in this group but American Fork is going to be the most underrated group coming in this year. We’re not just some bubble band, we have a legit shot making finals. We are already in full effect for the show and we’re making remarkable progress. To give you an idea last time we went to grand nationals in 2013 we beat one of the best cali bands Vista Murrita at st. George. This year in st George Ayala is making the trip down. If we beat them then we can show we can beat a former grand national finalist. We’re a good band and can contend with some of the best bands in the country, we just live in the wrong region of the state lol. But the point is watch our for AF this year. We’re goinf to surprise you guys.

  3. Where are all the TX bands for Grand Nats this year? San Antonio SuperRegional will be even more important this year.
