Jett Stevens, a 2020 graduate of LHS, auditioned during his senior year for the BOA Tournament of Roses Honor Marching Band.

Unfortunately, the 2021 Rose Bowl parade was canceled due to COVID and any member from that band was invited to the participate in 2022’s Rose Bowl Parade.

Jett is playing snare drum in the #BOATOR22 band. This year’s BOA Honor Marching Band has 300+ members from 40+ states and Jett is representing Loveland High School and the State of Ohio.

The theme of the Rose Bowl parade is ‘DREAM. BELIEVE. ACHIEVE.’ Jett is spending a week in Southern California, where he will have rehearsals, performances at the Tournament of Roses Bandfest and Disneyland, special activities and Tournament of Roses parade.

While in Loveland, Jett participated in Mallet Madness, LMS concert Bands, LMS Stage Band, LHS Marching Band, LHS Show Choir Band, and LHS Wind Symphony. Additionally, Jett played in the Orchestra pit for several musicals and with the LHS Orchestra during the Holiday concerts.

Jett is now a Sophomore at the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music, double majoring in Music Performance (percussion) and Jazz Studies (drumset).

Watch the 2022 Rose Parade begins at 11am ET on New Year’s Day to catch Jett doing what he loves!
