Hall was honored with the following group and individual awards:
Outstanding Trombone Section
Outstanding Saxophone Section
Outstanding drummer, Tobias Siegel
Outstanding Trombone Soloist, Eli Heinen
Outstanding Bass Soloist, Gavin Gray

Winners of the competition in '98 and '00, this was Hall's 9th time participating in the festival.
