Welcome to Petoskey Bands

Seniors Pictures!

Here is a link to purchase your photos from Senior Night from back in October. Also, that photographer took some action shots from the performance that night that you could also purchase as well.

Here is the link to the slideshow that Mitch Franseth graciously put together for our Senior Banquet. Enjoy!

Click here or the button below to see what food items we'll need to feed all of these hungry cyclists! Please bring all donated food items to the Petoskey High School band room doors between 12-1:00 or 5-6:30pm on Friday, September 1st. Thank you for your generosity!

We also appreciate monetary donations that goes towards the food that we do have to purchase! You can send a check to PO Box 236 (Petoskey, MI), Venmo PetoskeyBand-Boosters, or cash! (Please be sure to note on any form of payment that it is for "DALMAC".)

What is DALMAC you ask?

The DALMAC is a major cyclist event, with riders going in massive groups on several routes across the state.This is a fundraiser that we have every Labor Day weekend. We ask for volunteers to come in for a two-hour shift in a 28-hour window. (Any students receiving scholarships for camps will need to work this event as part of their scholarship). It’s a fun event!






Summer Sectionals will begin the week of June 17th and continue through Band Camp. All sectionals will take place in the high school band room.

Clarinets: Tuesdays, 8:00-9:00

Alto Saxophones: Thursdays, 10:00-11:00

Drumline: You will be receiving information from Mr. Willson.

Colorguard: You have been receiving information from Mrs. Marvin.

The expectation is that students are at sectionals. There is a lot of work that goes into preparing for camp. Obviously, we’ll have students that are gone for camps, trips, etc. We understand that’s a part of summertime, too, and we believe that’s a good opportunity for everyone. However, if you are in town, the expectation is the same as any other sports team. Your employers have had other workers with commitments to teams, so this isn’t a new idea to any boss in town. We’ve worked and will continue to work with coaches to build a practice/sectional schedule that allows students to participate in both activities. 

Just like every other year, we’ll lead the 4th of July Parade at 6:00, downtown Petoskey. Students need to let their employers know that they need the time off for the parade performance. If you aren’t specific about it, they’ll think that you’re just trying to get out of work early to go to the beach/breakwall/fireworks.

Call time: 5:15, PHS Band Room (Percussion- 4:30 call)

Dress: Khaki shorts, appropriate close-toed shoes, a uniform shirt that we'll be providing to you.

It’s a relatively short parade- it’s not uncommon for downtown workers to finish the parade, then go finish their shift working somewhere.
