Mays High School, both of Atlanta, GA.  For more info, please visit www.marchingbandhof.com

B. Rossi is a product of band programs of Southwest DeKalb High School, Decatur, GA and Florida A&M University, Tallahassee, Florida.  His eclectic musical talent and unique originality place him at the top of the charts in innovation and creativity.  His single “Halftime” parallels with the theme of the Marching Band Hall of Fame showcase while adding a diverse spin on the traditional sound of band music.
