Jazz Band is open to anyone and meets after school during the Spring Semester on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:45pm - 4:45pm. All are welcome to join the Jazz Band! They rehearse and perform many styles of music; Swing, Afro-Cuban, Latin, Samba, Rock, Funk, Contemporary, and Avant-garde to name a few. Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Sammy Nestico, Buddy Rich, Stan Kenton, and Gordon Goodwin are just some of the many composer's music we perform. They also attend six Jazz Festivals during the Spring Semester; five are local; Esperanza HS, Irvine HS, Fullerton College, Mt. SAC, & RCC Jazz Festivals. We also attend the prestigious Reno Jazz Festival, a four day event at the end of April where over 300 performing groups from around the nation come to compete, and world renown Jazz musicians, clinicians, educators, and composers judge the event. 2016 will be the 54th annual event. This year, the Grammy Award Winning band, 'Snarky Puppy' will be performing in concert on Friday night.
