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 2017 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.

Mattress Sale

Mattress Sale – August TBD, 2023 10 AM – 5 PM  ***** Thank you for making last years a big success!!! *****

New, with warranty, Name Brand Mattresses, 30-50% below store prices.

Every mattress sold benefits SMHS band and takes the pressure off the parents that already donate so much to this fantastic program.

Our band program is one of the top in the state, and we are a donation only program. That means that no matter what each family can afford every child can play and benefit from a group of amazing instructors. It takes over $150,000 to keep it going above the district budget which hardly covers instrument repair. Many of these kids have the benefit of using school instruments which cost anywhere from $800 to $30,000!

That means that no matter what each family can afford, every child can play and benefit from a group of amazing instructors.

If you are in the market for a new mattress or know someone who is looking for a new bed, please keep us in mind!
