Dos Pueblos High School hosts its 48th Jazz in Paradise Festival this year. Schools from the junior high all the way to college level will compete ending in an evening concert with percussionist Gregg Bissonette.

The Dos Pueblos Jazz Band is the jewel of the Instrumental Music Department; an award winning band, offering both Intermediate and Advanced level opportunities.
Competition season begins during the spring, with Dos Pueblos High School hosting one of many Jazz Festivals in the Southern California region. We then will compete in several more throughout the remainder of the school year, including the prestigious Reno Jazz Festival.
The Jazz Band is a MUST SEE if you appreciate the big band sound – they are truly amazing… don’t miss it! The bands will also be showcased at concerts in December and May.
