Committed to Tradition
Have you ever seen a college football game, where the half-time show is a big band marching cool patterns on the football field? That is what our kids are going to learn to do well during Marching Band Season.
During Marching Season, students will spend time in class during the day learning the music.and then they will practice two evenings a week through mid-November, and on five Saturdays we have an all-day practice at the school.
RBV Home Varsity Football Games start in September of each school year. The featured half time show is, you guessed it, the Rancho Buena Vista Band and Color Guard! The Band also sells food at the Snack Bar / Concessions during the game, which helps us raise money. It will take 30 band parent volunteers per game to run the snack bar smoothly. Football games are on Friday Nights – the students need to be there early. Check the calendar for dates and times. Marching Band and Color Guard Tournaments are simply marching competitions against other High Schools from all over Southern California. Between 20 and 30 High School Bands get together and strut their stuff – Marching Madness, Magnificent Music and Flags Flying. We usually compete at 5-6 Tournaments from October through November of each year. See the calendar for call times, location, map and other details. RBV Premier Tournament is usually in the middle of October. This is the one tournament that RBV Band and Color Guard hosts, attracting 15-20 High School Bands from all over Southern California. Through concessions, entry fees, program advertising and vendor fees, we raise a considerable amount of funds. This is our biggest fundraising event of the year!
