Our Bands

TCSBA currently has four performing bands comprised of middle and high school students from the Tri-Cities area of Washington state. Bram Bratá and Ok2Botay are steel drum bands and ‘Bahuru and ‘Baduku African marimba bands. The bands perform throughout the Pacific Northwest and occasionally in more exotic places.

Our students develop outstanding musical skills through the leadership of our directors, Ben Legget and Walt Hampton. As they put in long hours of practice, traveling and performing together, they also learn the value of teamwork, commitment and service. Our students commit to remain alcohol, drug and tobacco-free as a condition of participation in the bands.
