Uniforms and Concert Attire – This is Important!
We have had a whirlwind fall! The band sounds great, now we need to send out a couple reminders so they look great too! Also we have American Rose Bridal coming in tomorrow to fit the new freshman and new incoming band students for Concert attire on Friday, September 26th. Yep that is tomorrow.
Reminder 1. When the band is wearing their uniforms, students need to:
1. Bring and wear their band shoes. (new bags are on the way, so soon they can be stored in uniform room)
2. Wear white socks that cover the ankles. This prevents from seeing any color or skin if the spats or pants lift up… so all you see is white.
3. Girls and boys with long hair should have their hair up under the shako/hat. Shako’s can be taken off during non performing times, but during football games, All the rest of pieces of uniforms should stay on.
4. Students should be wearing black band T-shirts under their uniforms that were given to them at band camp. New students were given a tshirt at their uniform fitting so everyone should have one. If you have lost the tshirt, Contact Cari Trussell and we can give you a new one for $5.00.
5. No fingernail polish for performances. No visible piercings on nose eyebrow, etc. Earrings may be worn if small studs in ears.
Reminder 2. No Eating in your uniform!!!!! When traveling, like to Auburn. Band members may eat with the bibs/pants on, but no eating with the coat on. Thank you. Dry cleaning is expensive.
Concert Attire Update
American Rose Bridal will be at the school to fit all band and choir members on Friday, September 26th during their music periods. If they are a new or incoming student they will be fitted for a concert Dress (girls) Tuxes (boys)
We still don’t have a true cost yet. This is due to the amount of savings that the vender will receive based on how many items are ordered. The more ordered the better the discount which will be passed on to us.
The estimated rough cost will be:
Concert Dress $100.00
Concert Tux $125.00
includes pants, jacket, shirt, cummerbunds, bow ties
The actual cost will be charged to their ASB Account. Students can make payments to this at the student store.
Any returning students that need pieces of the concert uniform can check to see if we have any pieces to check out or new items can be ordered. If new items are ordered, student will be billed for those items on their ASB Accounts.
New Students joining after Band Camp
For those students who joined the band after band camp, I have sent invoices home for the shoes, spats and gloves that are required part of the uniform. Shoes are $35.00, Spats are $10.00 each and gloves are $2.50 each. For a total of $60.00.
Checks for these items can be made out to KHSBB (Kingston High School Band Boosters) and can be mailed to the band PO Box at:
P.O. Box 1054
Kingston, WA 98346

Football Game Details
Just an update on this coming weekend. We will be in the black band shirts and jeans (tennis shoes) for Friday night’s football game. That way we can pack up our uniforms and put them in the traveling boxes during class Friday. That eliminates the uniforms getting dirty or wet before Saturday. It also saves us time after we perform Friday night and early Saturday morning making sure uniforms are squared away.
If it rains we can put on the KHS Band rain coats that night.
We will be leaving the game right after halftime. The band will be excused to quickly head home and get some rest before Saturday. Of course students are welcome to stay but will be expected to show up on time the next morning.
Saturday – Leavenworth
A reminder that the band room will be open at 0500 Saturday morning. We leave at 0545 to catch the 0625 Kingston/Edmonds ferry. Students will be allowed to travel in comfortable clothes in the morning and change into their uniforms once we arrive in Leavenworth. Students will change back into acceptable (per NKSD &KHS dress code policy) clothes for free time. Students will need to pack a sack lunch to eat before we march. They have also been told to bring cash for dinner and any collectables they want to get in Leavenworth. They are welcome to bring additional food/snacks and a pillow to catch some sleep Saturday morning as we head out. Attached is the job sheet schedule for the day if you have misplaced your first one.
That’s all for now. Any questions feel free to contact me.
