Join the Band this Fall
Classes begin tomorrow, and that means it's time to jam! Monday Night Rehearsal (aka MNR) is our weekly rehearsal that brings the full band together to rehearse new music, play some old favorites, and catch up with friends. If you plan to join the band this fall, MNR is the time to do it. Our first rehearsal will be Monday, 8/28/17.

Picnic Day Recap
Another year, another Picnic Day. And what a day it was. We marched the parade in the morning, followed by the Battle of the Bands in the afternoon. This year, the battle included college pep and marching bands from Cal, UC Davis, UC Irvine, Humboldt State, Stanford, and us! The battle went from 2 PM to 10 PM, and we made it to around 8:30 this year.
Here are two videos from the Battle. The first one of the more challenging songs we did, "Classical Gas". The second is clips from the battle, including Stanford Band's group song/musical chaos known as "Beginnings".
Looking forward to next year's Picnic Day & Battle!
WCC Las Vegas Tournament Recap
This year's annual trip to Las Vegas for the West Coast Conference Basketball tournament was one to remember.
While neither the men's nor women's team made it to the final, we got to experience some very exciting matchups this year, and we had a blast on our trip to Las Vegas. The women made it to the semi-final round on Monday, while the men were eliminated in the quarter final on Saturday. So while our Basketball season may have come to an end, the band is very excited to see what Dons Basketball has in store for next season :)
A very special thanks to the Athletics Dept. for getting us to Las Vegas and helping us root our Dons "on to victory"!
Here's a clip from our Friday performance at Kids Day, an annual event that brings hundreds of local kids to the tournament for an afternoon of dancing, fitness, and fun. Thanks to the WCC for including is in the event!
