Grueninger Music Tours (GMT) is one of the nation’s oldest, largest and most experienced travel companies focusing on travel for elite high school marching bands. These 63 years of experience have solidified GMT as a company of excellence. A trip that is well crafted, educational, purposeful, and perhaps most of all, extraordinarily memorable just doesn’t happen by itself. There are so many details to take care of and so many problems that could easily arise. As your travel partner, GMT anticipates and handles EVERYTHING so you are free to concentrate on your rehearsals and performance.
Our first trip hosting a band to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade was in 1973. Our first trip hosting a band to perform in the Pasadena Rose Parade band was in 1963. Since that time, we’ve been back with student performance groups more than we could count. Each year GMT takes hundreds of students to perform all over the globe. From Ireland on St. Patrick’s Day to Spring Break trips in Orlando, we’ve been around the block a few times. Since 2000 alone, GMT has managed band travel for over 60 bands to Pasadena, California for the Tournament of Roses. It is not uncommon for GMT to move over 1,500 guests in a week to California.
