Military-style music was instrumental in developing the repetoire for the marching bands and concert bands of today.  In furtherance of that tradition, the American Legion hosts a band competition as part of its annual convention.  Concert and marching bands sponsored by the American Legion are eligible to participate.  The bands are evaluated and ranked by notable collegiate-level/professional band directors.  A small monetary award is presented to the top-rated bands and the honor of "National Champion" is awarded to the first-place band.  The American Legion Band of Greater Kansas City most recently earned this honor in 2016, its 65th consecutive appearance in this competition - a testament to the band's dedication to perpetuating this important genre of music.
