SLO County Band Sponsorship Opportunities

The SLO County Band is the oldest performing arts organization in the County having been formed in the 1880's. The Band continues a proud tradition by performing approximately 20 shows a year including two formal concerts, several SLO Farmers' Market shows and various patriotic and community events throughout the County. Band members are all volunteers and currently have to personally contribute $140/year in dues to be a member. Sponsor fees would eliminate these personal contributions and would make band membership even more appealing to potential members.
