It’s that time of year again to sign-up for the 2017-2018 Marching Band and Color Guard!

Dear 2017-2018 Students and Parents,

The form to indicate whether you are interested in joining the Samohi Viking Marching Band and Color Guard for the upcoming school year is now available. If you are a current marching band member and are not planning on returning, please fill out the survey as well.


Band camp will be taking place August 7th-11th and 14th-18th from 12 noon until 8 pm daily. Please do NOT plan to go out of town during these dates if you intend on joining us in the marching band. Band camp is crucial for setting the marching band up for a successful season. Please also be aware that during the fall semester, marching band meets everyday (including Wednesdays!) at 7 am.

If you have friends who do not play standard band instruments or have a background in dance, please encourage them to consider learning a new instrument or joining the color guard. There are opportunities for all!

The deadline to have this survey completed is May 19th. If you have any questions about marching band requirements, please do not hesitate to email Mr. McKeown ( or our instructional assistant Ms. Kaddoura (

Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you in the fall!


Kevin McKeown

Director of Bands, Santa Monica High School
