We need volunteers to sign up to help with Sounds of Conejo exhibition on Oct. 1 in Thousand Oaks.

This also will be our first outing with props. The itinerary for the event has been added to the Calendar as text and a downloadable attachment for your convenience.

Band needs trailer, truck 
owner to pull it for shows

The band has outgrown its current truck and an additional truck rental will have a very costly affect on our budget.  If you know someone who may be selling a 24-foot to 34-foot, 2- or 3-axle trailer that could be hooked to a standard heavy duty truck, let Mr. Cook know. A low-riding trailer or non-fifth-wheel style is preferred. A side door is ideal, but draw-string rear door is required for easy loading and unloading of equipment.  The trailer may need to be slightly modified for music department uses, so borrowing a trailer is not ideal, but will be considered under our current circumstances. Email achsbandboosters@gmail.com with information.


Download your Dot Coordinates 

Dot coordinates have been made available here for students' convenience. Please find your dot ID page first. Then press print and a menu should pop-up. Depending on your printer software/system software, you should be able to select a page range or just check current page. This will allow you to print your dot sheet (and one other members) as opposed to everyone’s dot.

Marching Band music available to students

Pep Tunes, Warm-ups, and Fair Parade music are available on the Marching Band page for download and practice. The show design team is working out the kinks on the music before we bring in the visual elements. Our intent is to get you music once it is ready, but our primary concern is getting everyone music that will not be heavily edited after the fact, but rather something we believe we keep for the season.
