CLEVELAND, Ohio – There are only three days left to vote in the quarterfinal round of cleveland.com's Best High School Marching Band contest.
More than 60,000 votes have been cast so far, yet all four matchups are still very close races. Scroll down to see the standings as of Monday morning and to vote in the four polls.
The only way to keep your favorite band in the lead or turn the tables in a matchup is to vote, and to do it often. You're encouraged to vote hourly before the polls close on Wednesday, Oct. 5 at 7 a.m.
The eight quarterfinalists, selected by our readers last week from 32 contestants, are now competing in a bracketed tournament, based on where each band finished in first round voting.
