The Beat Goes On Marching Band

Back by popular demand.


The Beat Goes On

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

The Beat Goes On was a smash success at last year’s fair, so we asked them back for 2021. This is an all-adult marching band 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.

The forty members of TBGO features high-energy, brassy, rock-and-roll style. Yes, it’s a marching band. But it’s more likely to play Lady Gaga than John Philip Sousa. Band members are mainly from the Pacific Northwest, but come from as far away as Ohio, Florida, Arizona, Texas and California for special events.
