The Northern California Band Association (NCBA) provides judging for band competitions in Northern/Central California and Northern Nevada. These competitions include field competitions, band reviews, concert band, jazz band, winter guards, percussion, and solo drum major competitions.

The NCBA was established in 1990 by music directors in to provide an organization that could judge diverse marching band competitions that were being run by independent organizations. The goal was to provide consistency from competition to competition along with a slate of highly skilled judges.

The goal of the organization is to not only provide judging for competitions, but to provide quality adjudication that supports education.
