Excelling at any sport isn’t easy. It requires discipline, teamwork, many resources and long hours of practice.

And our kids can’t do it alone.

That’s why the McNeil Band Boosters need your help. This 501(c)(3) non-profit organization supports not only the McNeil band and color guard, but also the bands at our three feeder middle schools. That’s more than 800 kids to support with printed music and copyrights, purchasing and repairing school instruments, uniforms, private lesson assistance and more.

Please consider investing in your community by supporting these kids who work so hard all year long. Each year begins with marching at football games and contests, then progresses into concert season, solo and ensemble contests, UIL competition and Winter Guard.
We believe we offer some unique benefits that will help you gain exposure as a community member supporting its kids! Please review the variety of levels available. We look forward to hearing from you!

Please read the flyers below for more information about the benefits of supporting the McNeil Band!
