the los osos regiment (marching band)
Through the hard work and dedication of its musicians and color guard members, the Los Osos Regiment has, since 2002, built a reputation as one of the finest marching band organizations of its kind in Southern California. The Regiment performs at home football games, local parades, and at marching band tournaments throughout Southern California. The Regiment has also made recent trips to the Fiesta Bowl National Band Tournament and Fiesta Bowl Parade in Phoenix, Arizona, the Northern Arizona University Band Day, and many trips to marching band events in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Regiment is annually ranked in the top of its division throughout Southern California and won gold medals at the SCSBOA Field Show Championships (5A division) in 2007 and 2012.
This ensemble performs challenging musical arrangements choreographed to contemporary, drum-corps style drill movements on the field. In addition to large brass and woodwind sections, the Regiment includes a battery-unit drumline, pit percussion section, and award-winning color guard. Filled with a sense of pride and enthusiasm, the Regiment provides Los Osos students with a place to make music, new friends, support school spirit, and grow as individuals.

Freshmen play for two hours each day. Color Guard students are enrolled both in the Regiment and in Color Guard Class. Percussion students are enrolled both in the Regiment and in Percussion Class.
