Hello REV Band Boosters,
How is everyone doing on their Marching Band Fair Share? 

What if I told you that I have a volunteer opportunity for you that will donate funds towards your students Fair Share?

The REV Band Brew Crew has that opportunity. Interested? Keep reading...
There are 10 potential concerts left in our 2014 San Manuel concert season. That is 7 confirmed events with 3 unconfirmed. 

With the approval of Ms. Glass and the REV Band Booster Board I have arranged for the profits from 4 of the confirmed events as well as 2 of the unconfirmed events (if they become confirmed) to be divided into shares and donated to the students who have an Aramark trained adult over the age of 21 work in their name. 

However, there is a catch, in order for your student to receive their share, you must also agree to work two additional San Manuel concerts during the 2014 season. There are 3 confirmed dates remaining, with 1 date unconfirmed (Total of 4 potential dates.) 

Keep reading for answers to the Frequently Asked Questions.

Allow 30-35 minutes drive time begining at the Ford St. entrance to the I-10 freeway.

Transition to I-15 SOUTH and take the first exit* (GLEN HELEN PARKWAY & THE AMPHITHEATER) and turn LEFT.
Enter the park through GATE NUMBER 1. Follow the road back to the amphiteater. Turn into the VIP parking lot, then make a LEFT into the back stage parking lot. Park in the BACK STAGE PARKING LOT.
Look for the building that reads ADMINISTRATION. At the opposite end of that building is the GREEN ROOM where the training sessions will take place.
