Foothill High School Music Program

The Annual Foothill Band Review

Every year since 1974, on the 4th Saturday in October, the top high school bands in Northern California and Nevada have gathered in Pleasanton for the Annual Foothill Band Review.  This October we will be hosting our 43rd annual Band Review. 

We continue to carry on this grand tradition of hosting the biggest, most competitive, and best-run band review in our area of the country.  Last year we showcased the City of Pleasanton and the Foothill Band Program as we welcomed over 50 high schools for parade, concert and field show competitions.

Mark your calendar now for October 28, 2017! Bring grandparents, other family members, and friends!  

  • The high schools and middle schools parading down Pleasanton's Main St. are a wonderful sight and sound.  The parade competition runs from approximately 8:30am until 1:00pm. 
  • There will also be concert competitions during the morning at Amador High School.  
  • In the afternoon, the parade awards will be presented at the Amador High School football stadium, starting around 3:00pm.  
  • The field show competition commences at Foothill High School at around 2:00pm, and lasts until 10:00pm, followed by the presentation of the field show competition and sweepstakes awards. 
Band Directors and Competitors



We are currently accepting applications for parade, field show, and concert.  We will hand out over 120 trophies and awards over the course of this wonderful event.  To start the day, the parade competition launches from Amador Valley High School and marches down Main St., right through Pleasanton's lovely downtown.  The parade awards and field show are held in the afternoon and evening at Foothill High School, overlooking the Tri-Valley area - a beautiful venue for a band review!  

Participating band directors over the years have consistently lauded our organization  - we strive to make it easy for you, all the way through to the great selection of food at our concession stands to satisfy all of our hungry students and their families.

Parents and Boosters

We are very proud to carry on the grand tradition of hosting the biggest, most competitive, and best run band review in our area of the country.  This year will mark 43 years of showing off our town, our school, our music program, and our students.

Many Hands Make for Lighter Work and More Fun

We have a well-developed and time-tested program for putting on the Band Review, but to be successful, we need your participation.  There are more than 300 volunteer positions to be filled, all well-defined and ready for you to step into.  These positions occur at all different times during the Band Review day, with a few of them before the big day and a few afterwards.  We ask every family to take at least two spots.  Want to do more? We have team leader positions for many facets of the the band Review.

Open planning meetings for all section leads and all those wanting to be involved in the event will be held on Thursdays at 7:00 pm. The first general Fall Band Review Meeting will be on Thursday, September 7 at 7:00 pm. (location to be confirmed).  This 9/7 meeting is the meeting you should attend to learn more about the band review and how to get involved. 
Subsequent meetings will be held on  9/21, 10/5, 10/12, 10/19. (Band Review "leads" only will also meet on Thursday 8/31 and the week of the event as needed.)
