Welcome to the Deep Run Band Boosters Website
Congratulations to the Marching and Concert Bands for being recognized as a
Special 10 year Honor Band on the VBODA website!
The Deep Run Band Boosters is a family organization that supports the Deep Run High School Bands and Colorguard programs. Our purpose is to provide the financial support necessary for the DRHS Wildcat Band to participate at all Deep Run Varsity Football Games, concerts, and at major national and regional music competitions. The Deep Run Band Boosters was organized exclusively for charitable purposes to promote the study, composition and performance of music for high school students. The organization was legally formed on August 8, 2002, under the Laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia as an IRS Section 501(c)(3) Tax Exempt Entity.
ALERT: If you are a current band family and have not received Band Communications
in the past several weeks,

Congratulations Wildcats on a successful 2013 Season!
