Banded Story:

Every season during the weekend of MCGC State Championships, Genesis & G2 host a Friday evening Community Performance sponsored by Grand Rapids Youth Performing Arts (GRYPA), their affiliated non-profit. The groups then spend all day Saturday rehearsing side-by-side, literally separated only by a door and some steps. Members perform for each other and grow their social bonds. These events are critical to our success and continuity, as multiple members make the leap from G2 to Genesis every year.

Artist Bio:

In its five years of existence, G2 has competed in five Michigan Color Guard Circuit (MCGC) State Championships, three WGI Regionals, and three WGI Finals.

During  that span, G2 has finished as an MCGC Percussion Indepedent A medalist, including two silver medals (2017, 2019) and one gold medal (2018 - "Crude").

In three WGI Regional competitions, G2 notched two second place finishes (Troy 2016, 2017) and one first place finish (Chicago 2019 - "Caged"). G2 has also qualified as WGI Percussion Independent A Class Finalist three times in as many visits to WGI Finals, placing in the top ten every year. We look forward to building on that success in 2020 and beyond!
