Old Saybrook High School

“In short, we loved it. This was our first successful trip to someplace that wasn't Disney World, and that's a big deal for our little town. In fact, the town next door is now thinking about planning their own music trip to New Orleans. They've asked for copies of our itinerary, and we'll pass that along, as well as a recommendation for Gateway.”

Jeremy Taylor, Band Director
Old Saybrook, CT

When the invitation arrives, make Gateway YOUR second call!
We're ready to help make the most of your trip to the Rose Bowl.


Bowl Games in foreign countries generate the same enthusiastic crowds as in the U.S. For many, the only ingredient missing to complete this "American football experience" has been American bands.

East Coast

New England and America's East Coast, all the way down to the panhandle, have far more to offer than just Boston, New York and Washington, DC. There's something for any group looking to explore these regions. Try a Christmas parade in Atlanta or the International Azalea Festival in Norfolk. Beaches, coastal scenery, mountains and historic landmarks can all be combined for your ideal tour.
