Dos Pueblos High School Jazz Band 1

Dos Pueblos High School, Goleta, CA

Dos Pueblos High School is from the city of Goleta, California just north of Santa Barbara. The high school offers a full comprehensive music program. The jazz segment includes two jazz bands, jazz choir, and various combos. Students in Jazz Band 1 are required to audition and most take private lessons.

There is a long tradition of jazz education at Dos Pueblos. The school was one of the first in California to host a jazz festival, this year being the 49th year. Each year the festival contracts with a well known jazz musician for an evening concert that features them with the Dos Pueblos Band. This year’s featured artist is Eric Marienthal, while past years have included greats such as: Bill Watrous, Tom Scott, Louie Bellson, Cat Anderson, and Gregg Bissonnette to name a few. This is the first time ever for the band to travel to the east coast. They are so excited for this great opportunity!
