About The Oak Grove High School Marching Band and Colorguard

We have an active and supportive Booster Organization and invite you to join us. Oak Grove High School Band Boosters (OGBB) is a nonprofit group organized for the sole purpose of supporting ALL band programs at Oak Grove High School.


For more than three decades, the Oak Grove Band Boosters have been supporting the music and guard programs at Oak Grove High School in San Jose California. The students who are involved in these programs develop lifelong skills and friendships. The Marching Band and Guard programs at Oak Grove are considered one of the finest in the state.


The boosters exist to enhance the support that the program receives through the school district. Booster activities provide necessary funds, volunteers, and equipment to assist the band and guard directors.


The various Band Programs in which your student can participate are:
Color Guard, Marching Band, Symphonic Band, Wind Ensemble, Percussion Ensemble, Jazz A, and Jazz B.


OGBB is currently funded through Donations and Fundraising. These monies pay for some of the additional costs incurred for band/music programs not covered by the East Side Union High School District.
