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 Foothill Band Review.  In October we hosted the 42nd band review. 

We carried on this grand tradition of hosting the biggest, most competitive, and best-run band review in our area of the country.  And this year, once again, we showcased  Pleasanton and the Foothill Band Program as we welcome over 50 high schools for parade, concert and field show competitions.

Mark your calendar now for next year in october! Bring grandparents, other family members, and friends.  The high schools and middle schools parading down our Main St. is a wonderful sight and experience.  The parade competition run from approximately 8:30am until 1:00pm in downtown Pleasanton.  There will also be concert competitions during the morning at Amador High School.  In the afternoon, the parade awards will be presented at the Foothill High School football stadium, starting around 3:00pm.  The field show competition commences after the awards ceremony has concluded and lasts until 10:00pm, followed by the presentation of the field show competition and sweepstakes awards. 

General Admission is $10 and we  are always looking for trophy sponsors for the Band review.
Band Directors and Competitors


Welcome.  We are currently accepting applications for parade, field show and concert.  We will hand out over 120 trophies and awards.  The parade competition launches from Amador Valley High School and marches down Main St., right through our downtown.  The parade awards and field show are held in the afternoon and evening at Foothill High School, overlooking Tri-Valley area.  We believe we offer one of the nicest venues for a band review.  Band directors over the years have consistently lauded our organization  - we strive to make it easy for you.  We off a great selection of food at our concession stands which can satisfy all of our hungry students and their families.

Parents and Boosters

We are very proud to carry on this grand tradition of hosting the biggest, most competitive and best run band review in our area of the country.  41 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.
