During the Fall Season the Sound Wave band conducts it's largest fundraiser of the year, the Sound Wave March-A-Thon. During this event the Sound Wave Band will march a 3.5 mile-long route through the heart of Gulf Breeze with a police escort, beginning and ending at Pride Field behind Gulf Breeze High School. The band will play music that includes the school’s fight song, stand tunes and portions of the halftime show. They will stop to perform “mini-concerts” for families who live along the parade route, have coordinated with us ahead of time, and have donated at least $100.
In the months prior to the event, students will be collecting donations and distributing door hangers along the route to spread the word.
More information on the 2019 March-A-Thon coming soon!

"The John Chapin Percussion Equipment Fund"
This continuing fund is in memory of John Chapin who lost his battle with ALS earlier in 2017. The fund began in March of the same year by his daughter, Kristen Johnson, and her stepmother in the amount of a $5,000 donation. John Chapin was a very talented percussionist. Music was his love, and this is something he instilled in his children and also his grandchildren, Kort and Hailey Gilbert, who were in the GB Percussion Ensemble. The aim of this fund is to assist the band in purchasing percussion equipment when it is needed. The group has exponentially outgrown its battered equipment. No staff member wants to read the most heart breaking comment from a judge that your kids are limited by the age of the equipment they are using. This fund is meant to try to bridge that gap. Every instrument purchased with this fund will have a placard with his name on it so that in years to come the students will remember why they are here.
