The DHS Band Boosters express appreciation to the Davis community for support of An Evening at the Coconut Grove on March 9. Funds from this event support the DHS Band Program (Concert, Symphonic and Jazz bands) and help to provide financial assistance so that all students can participate in band activities.
This year’s Coconut Grove featured food catered by Dos Coyotes and the musical talents of many local student musicians. We thank the music directors and these groups for their participation: Clyde Quick, Tom Slabaugh (Da Vinci,Emerson, Holmes Junior High Jazz Band), Nancy Sanchez (Harper Junior High Jazz Band), Celia Cottle (Sax by Popular Demand, J Street Jazz Cats), Crazy Eights and Tom Slabaugh (DHS Bands). The dedication of these directors is crucial to the success of the music programs throughout our community.
