The best way to support San Marcos Bands is through the ‘Fund the Band’ campaign.

Motors for Music

March 17, 2024 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

Click HERE for more details.

Motors for Music is a charity car show to benefit the music program at San Marcos High School. These are not your ordinary musicians… the marching band, Knight Regiment, at 300 members is one of the largest, most-admired ensembles in the state – recently ranked among the top 4 in the Regional Bands of America competition in Los Angeles. Three  award-winning Jazz Bands, two Winter Guard squads, four talented Concert Bands, and an annual multi-media live stage show called AXIOM that will blow you away! These students are dedicated, strive for excellence and don’t ever shy away from hard work!

Your participation in the Motors for Music Charity Car Show will help support the expenses associated with coaching, tournaments and championship competition (bus transportation, entry fees, equipment, props, costumes and more) that are not covered by the school district funds. So come on out, have a great time and support a great program that teaches students the value of teamwork, perseverance, skill-building and making friendships that will last a lifetime.


This exciting, entertaining program is unlike any show you’ve seen before and features a story, live musicians, movement, and dancing and is backed by an impressive display of lighting and multimedia.

This is an all ages, family-friendly show (toddlers to teenagers to grandparents ALL love it) that features student musicians and dancers. This is a perfect time to visit the SMHS campus and enjoy an eclectic mix of music layered with dance, movement, acting, and multimedia. All ticket sales directly benefit the students in the music program at San Marcos High School.

  • The mattresses are brand name and priced up to 50% less than retail!

  • Hand out your referral flyers to people you know.
  • Print your name on the coupon at the bottom, so you get credit!
  • Be at the school on Saturday, August 5, 2023 to help promote the event and have FUN!
