About OGBB

Welcome to Oak Grove High School’s
Award-Winning Band Programs

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

For nearly 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 OGHS District fees.

Fundraising help fund the following items and events:

  • Expanded Music Selections for Symphonic, Wind Ensemble, and Jazz Bands
  • Clinics for Symphonic, Wind Ensemble, Percussion Ensemble and Jazz Bands
  • Uniform alterations, dry-cleaning and repairs for concert and marching uniforms
