The 2019 Cedar Falls Regional will be held Sept. 28 at the UNI-Dome on the campus of the University of Northern Iowa. This is the first regional held in the state of Iowa and is an exciting opportunity for bands to perform in a dome environment.

Brief Preview
Wow, is this going to be an awesome competition! Not only does it have an incredible line up, it's also in an air-conditioned dome, so spectators don't even have to worry about the heat.

Blue Springs and Blue Springs South are two of the top groups representing the state of Missouri. Both had historic seasons in 2018, with Blue Springs finishing third at Grand Nationals, and South making their second appearance at a super regional finals in St. Louis. This season, they're using the same program coordinator, but can be expected to maintain their unique identities.

Along with the Blue Springs schools, Rosemount, O'Fallon Township, and Marian Catholic will be aiming for a medal. But with so many incredible bands, there simply aren't enough medals to give out. Expect this top half of finals to be a close competitions with some disagreements among the judges.

In the bottom half of finals, we expect to see groups like Bellevue East, Camdenton, Greendale, Lincoln, Lockport Township, Marshall, Morton, and Iowa native Davenport Central. Each of these groups have their own history of accomplishments and will be giving it their best to earn a spot in the night show.

    1. They must have! I mean, they were the first band out of finals at a stacked Indianapolis Super Regional last year and have made 2 St. Louis finals. I'm guessing they're going to be in the 3rd-5th place range in Iowa.

  3. Wow--tough competition! IMO, they are ALL winners. Ten years after you get out of HS, alot of this stuff doesn't really matter. It matters to have fun and do your best.

    Shout out to Blue Valley SW! Looking good this year!

  5. Attended this show and it was awesome. I do think BOA under estimated the response and attendance. They ran out of programs and there weren’t enough concession stands open. Hopefully, they’ll do Cedar Falls again next year and get the kinks out. Was blown away by Blue Springs North and Rosemount is always a crowd pleaser.
