Welcome To The Davis High Band
Davis High School opened in 1914 and introduced band to the curriculum in 1920. The first marching band was formed during the 1930/31 school year. In 1990 current director Steven Hendricks took over the program. Today the Davis High Band enjoys a national reputation for excellence in both concert and marching band, having performed at the Midwest Clinic in 1998 and the Rose Parade in 2003 and 2013. The color guard was the 2015 Utah State Champion, and the winter drumline is has won the Utah State Championship ten years in a row. In November 2017 the band will perform in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City.
