The Beat Goes On Marching Band

They wear purple. They play band instruments. They march around the Fair. They make everyone grin.

The Beat Goes On was a smash success at the Oregon State Fair in the past, so we asked them back for 2022. This all-adult marching band is committed to delighting Pacific Northwest, national and international audiences while reliving the best parts of the marching band experience. The band is known for its feel-good attitude, emphasis on audience interaction, and spontaneity on the street and on stage.

TBGO features a high-energy, brassy, rock-and-roll style. Yes, it’s a marching band. But it’s more likely to play Lady Gaga or Bruno Mars than John Philip Sousa. Not many bands have performed in Alaska’s largest parade, the nation’s oldest Fourth of July parade in Rhode Island, on the floor of the Oregon House of Representatives, in a 25-mile floral parade in the Netherlands, in a cruise ship’s main showroom, at an 18th century European castle, atop the Great Wall of China … and all around the Oregon State Fair.  If you're strolling the promenade and hear something loud and brassy behind you – The Beat Goes On!

The Beat Goes On is an all-adult marching band committed to delighting audiences while creating indelible memories. The band is known for its feel-good attitude, emphasis on audience interaction, and spontaneity on the street and on stage. Though our musical tastes are eclectic, TBGO features a high-energy, brassy, rock and roll style — we may be a marching band, but we're more likely to play Bruno Mars than John Phillip Sousa!

Among its many appearances TBGO has performed in Alaska's largest parade, the nation's oldest Fourth of July parade in Rhode Island, on the floor of the Oregon House of Representatives, in a 25-mile floral parade in the Netherlands, in front of the Alamo, in a cruise ship's main showroom, at an 18th century European castle, atop the Great Wall of China, and all around the Pacific Northwest, including the Oregon State Fair!

The Oregon State Fair is thrilled to welcome The Beat Goes On back to Summer's Big Finish, August 26-September 5, 2022!
