Welcome to the Sound Wave Band!
You are joining one of premiere organizations in Gulf Breeze High School. More importantly, you are joining the "up and coming young faces" of the Gulf Breeze community. We have over 50 performances per year, traveling to several states and competitions. These are done under the dedicated direction of Mr. Zach Dykes through our over six ensembles, indoor percussion and color/winter guards. Through their hard work, Excellence seems easy to these young musicians/performers, but Superior is the standard for the Sound Wave Band.
I am proud to represent Gulf Breeze Band Boosters Association, Inc. (GBBB) through the great support of YOU the parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and guardians. Through US, we provide money (MFSC, programs, MARCH-A-THON, concessions, and other fundraising) and people (volunteers- transportation, uniforms, hospitality, chaperones, concessions, officers, etc.)
I am also proud to introduce my executive board for 2017-2018: Barb Scott and Dan Hecht, co-vice presidents, Wendy Hoeflich, treasurer, and Grace Hofius, secretary. Please feel free to reach out to any of us if you ever need anything.
LOOKING FORWARD TO A GREAT ROOKIE CAMP, BAND CAMP AND 2017-2018 MARCHING SEASON!!
Scott J. Stonebraker
President, Gulf Breeze Band Booster Association, Inc.

Gulf Breeze Sound Wave My Fair Share Contribution Program (MFSC)-The fair share program was implemented to ensure that necessary funds would be available to support the band program at Gulf Breeze High School. It is designed to distribute the cost equally among all of the participants in the band. A budget is devised each spring and approved annually by vote of the GBBB membership at the May meeting. The fair share amount is part of this budget.
