San Marcos High School Band Hosts FUNdraiser for Competitions Across So Cal
Event on Saturday, February 26th features Drumline, Jazz Combo, and Special Jam with 80s Band Joystix
San Marcos High School (SMHS) Band Boosters will host a FUNdraiser and celebration on Saturday, February 26th from 5:00pm to 9:00pm at Draughtsmen Aleworks, 53 Santa Felicia Drive in Goleta. This free and family friendly event will be outdoors where there’s plenty of room to dance and features live music from the fab 80s band Joystix and special performances by SMHS’s award-winning Drumline and Jazz Combo.
As a special treat, Drumline will perform with Joystix on several songs in their set…something neither musical group has done before. “We are really excited to collaborate with John Roshell and Carrie Hutchinson from Joystix on a few tunes,” said Michael Kiyoi, SMHS Director of Instrumental Music, and Royals Alumni. “This is something unusual and different for us. But it is great to be working with Joystix and writing special charts (music) for our student on some fun, lively music! And John and I go back a few years, since his son was in Marching Band and played drums for SMHS…so it’s a Royals Reunion of sorts!”
In addition to the music and dancing, the event will include food for sale from Rudy’s and their brand new swaggy truck, along with a Bake Sale of yummy homemade goodies. Raffle tickets will be sold with chances to win a whole slew of prizes including gift certificates for restaurants and services, drum lessons, gift baskets, and more.
SMHS Band performs throughout Southern California and has a rigorous, and expensive travel schedule. 100% of the proceeds from this event will support the San Marcos High School Band and help to defray the competition travel costs. The Band is still accepting raffle item donations as well as paid sponsors to support our program.
