When sorting through photos here at Music for All, we enjoyed looking at all of the unique color guard uniforms over the years; so much that we decided to devote an entire Throwback Thursday post to color guard!


In the early years of Bands of America, color guard (auxillary) uniforms were often varitations of the band uniform; however, in the late 1980s and 1990s, color guard uniforms became an important part of the visual show design and changed each year. Previously, Bands of America Grand Nationals even featured a Highest Achievement Award for Auxillary. We hope you enjoy this collection of interesting color guard uniforms for Throwback Thursday! Share your favorite color guard uniform in the comments below!
