    Does the march on the stand have to be an official march or could a band play an unpublished arrangement?

    Each contest sets it's own rules and these do vary as regards number of players etc but all require the contest march to be a published march. You can play what you want on the road though.

    Should be published marches, the rules on that have been around for a long time at most contests.

    Does a march on Score Exchange count as being published?

    Didn't the TMP band play a march that had been specially written for them by Darrol Barry when they competed a few years back? I'm fairly sure that wasn't published beforehand.

    And aren't there bands that have played their own unpublished 'signature' marches? Besses or Dyke maybe?

    University of Warwick played a newly-written march by the university's director of music, Colin Touchin ("The Heavenly Bears March" I think was the title) a few years back - I'm sure that was unpublished, and we had no trouble anywhere in Saddleworth.
