HISTORY OF THE BAND

Back in the Day

The history and accomplishments of Hoquiam High Schools' Grizzly Band is rooted in tradition and commitment to excellence. Since the school's inception in 1913, band has been an important entity, and our HHS Band has competed and performed at prestigious venues and events.  The Hoquiam Band Program has traveled to Anaheim, CA to perform for monumental crowds at Disneyland, Veterans such as  four star Brigadier Generals, and ill children in the Shriner's hospital.  We've been to Victoria, B.C  to perform in the prestigious Victoria Days Parade.  They've won numerous 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place trophies throughout the years.  We've visited countless colleges and universities throughout the Pacific Northwest to work with College Directors, and been members of Honor Bands such as Washington All-State, All-Northwest, Pacific Lutheran University, Washington All-State Marching Band, Music in May and many others, and they're heard annually by over 100,000 people.... BUT OUR FAVORITE AUDIENCE is still our home crowd!  Our Band love's the applause, support and enthusiasm we receive from our hometown and school.  GO GRIZZLIES!

Student Leadership

HHS Bands have achieved a reputation of excellence, owing to their committed and talented team members and mentors. Brought together by a deep passion for performance and music, each member brings their own unique character and sound to the music department.  HHS Band has a distinct and effective leadership council.  The council helps to ensure that everything runs smoothly on the student side of things. Get to meet the faces behind the music.

Drum Major

Going into my third year as drum major, I've realized how much of an asset the HHS band has in the Hoquiam School District. Pride, Integrity, Perseverance, these are the traits we try to emulate every day, always pushing to make ourselves better and set an example for others to follow

Drum Major

Until this year, I don't think I understood the hard work and dedication that go into this program each and every day. The HHS band could not exist without the support of not only the administration and students but the community around us. My fellow classmates and I can stand tall know that we helped to continue this tradition and kept it alive for all past and future Grizzly Band members
