     Gulf Coast High School
Shark Band 
Our marching band is comprised of over 300 students and is one of the largest marching bands in the state of Florida.

    • Students auditioning for any Florida All-State band must turn in the All-State agreement form by this Friday, Aug. 22nd signed by both the parent and student.  The forms are available and labeled on a table in the band room.  If you don't meet this deadline,  Mr. C can not register you for the All-State audition which occurs September 20th at FGCU.  
    • Evening Marching Band rehearsals begin this week on Tuesday and Thursday, from 6:00 to 8:15 p.m., rain or shine.  We will continue learning drill to the show outdoors when weather allows and work indoors on music when not.  Please leave your Tuesday and Thursday evenings open for our important full band and auxiliary rehearsals.  
    • Any new student who has not been fit for a uniform can do so at the end of Tues or Thurs practice in the band room with Mrs. Coffey.  Meet her at 8:15 in the uniform room. 
    • Some students still have incomplete paper work.  Please click on "Info packet and forms" below to get all forms needed to be completed before our first performance this Friday.
    • This Friday is our first home game performance.  We will meet at 5:30 in order to get ready for pre-game performance.  Students should wear white T-shirts and black athletic shorts under their uniform.  Long black socks are also required with their black band shoes.  Auxiliaries will be informed by Miss Shoemaker and Mrs. Colo'n this week on what to wear and how to prep before the game. 
    • The school tech experts have been working on Mr. Colon's phone since he arrived and it still is not working. The original extension he was given will not work. We will post here as soon as Mr. C's band office phone has been fixed to receive calls. Thanks for your patience.  Also, as of last week, his email should now be receiving emails from off campus.

The GCHS WInd Ensemble traveled to Miami on Friday May 3rd to perform for the Florida Bandmasters Association State Concert Band MPA.  The Wind Ensemble did an incredible job and received Straight Superior Ratings!!  They also received the Otto Kraashaur award which is only given to bands that earn straight superior ratings at Marching Band MPA, District Concert Band MPA, and State Concert Band MPA.  This is the first time in the history of Gulf Coast High School that we have received this rating and award.  (Next time you are in the band room, take a look at the Otto Kraashaur Award Plaque hanging on the wall)  This is a really big deal and I can't tell you how proud I am of our students for all of their hard work and dedication to the Shark Band!
