On Oct. 11, the River City High School Band joined twenty-two other schools from locations as far away as Chowchilla, Concord, and Merced to compete in the Franklin High School Invitational Band Review in Elk Grove. Young musicians and their teachers, parents, and supporters took over the area, which included blocked off streets for the marching band competition, football fields for the field shows, and school theaters for the jazz competitions.

It was River City’s first time participating in the Invitational and their hard work paid off. The River City Regiment won first place in the Marching Band Category – Division B, the Big Band won third place in the Jazz Category – Division B, and Irina Onisko (RCHS drum major) won fourth place in Military Baton..

There are a few upcoming opportunities to see the RCHS band in action:

•    RCHS vs River Valley Football Game – Friday, October 31, 5:00pm – Adults $6,     Seniors & Students $4, ASB Sticker Free

Riverfront concert: ‘a hit’, say sponsors

NEWS-LEDGER — OCT 8, 2014 —

A music festival’s first time on the West Sacramento riverfront appeared to be a success.

Organizers say “TBD Fest” from Friday to Sunday in West Sacramento’s Bridge District drew about 21,000 people.  The event was formerly known as “Launch” and held annually in Sacramento.

Dozens of musical acts included headliners Moby, Empire of the Sun, and Justice. There was also food and art.

West Sacramento is trying to redevelop and show off its riverfront as a gathering place.

The event did draw noise complaints from people living nearby on both sides of the river.

Lieutenant Tod Sockman of the West Sacramento Police Department told the News-Ledger that his department received 16 noise complaints on Friday night and seven more on Saturday, with no figures available for Sunday.
