These two accomplished jazz bands from Walnut Creek are directed by Greg Brown, 2013-2014 CMEA Outstanding Jazz Educator Award recipient and 2018-2019 CMEA Paul Shaghoian Jazz Educator Award recipient, the latter which is bestowed upon the top jazz educator in the State of California.

5-time Winner of the Big Band Competition at the Next Generation Jazz Festival in Monterey--and finalist for the past eleven years--JB I performed back-to-back appearances at the world-renowned Monterey Jazz Festival from 2014 – 2018 and will be returning for yet another performance in 2019! This advanced group is also CAJ State Champion HS Jazz Band for 2014 and 2016. The band won its division at the 2017, 2018, and 2019 Folsom Jazz Festival, and was the winner of the 2015 and 2018 Folsom Jazz Festival HS Big Band Sweepstakes and runner-up for the same sweepstakes in 2016 and 2019. Additionally, Jazz Band I took top honors at the 2018 and 2019 El Cerrito Jazz Festival. The band was privileged to work this year in clinics and performances with Sean Jones, Francisco Torres, Edgardo Cambón, Carl Allen, Mary Fettig, Josh Shpak and Michael Miller.

Jazz Band II enables additional students to perform and develop soloing skills in a rigorous jazz environment. This group has earned many honors and awards at several jazz festivals and competitions including the Best Saxophone Section Award at the 2019 El Cerrito Jazz Festival. Jazz Band II also participates in community events with the Big Band of Rossmoor and at the Mt. Diablo Music Education Foundation's Music Festival.

Accolades for both bands include individual student awards for outstanding soloists/musicianship, scholarships, and placements in district, county, state, and national honor bands.
