The Gulf High School Buccaneer Band has been
serving the New Port Richey area for over fifty years. With its
beginnings in 1940, the band has strived for excellence in music
and to improve awarness in the fine arts.
As Gulf High's first official band director,
Robert O. Lampi was an advocate in music in the state of Florida,
served as President of the Florida
Bandmasters Association from 1969-1970, and was named Executive
Secretary until 1983 when he was replaced by Past Executive Director
F. Lewis Jones. Mr. Lampi then served as a consultant until his
death in 1985. Because of his hard work and dedication, the superior
rating award for district concert bands is named in his honor
and Mr. Lampi is a member of the FBA Hall of Fame.
Marching Bucs Make It 5-In-A-Row!!!
The Marching Buccaneers earned their
5th superior rating at their annual FBA Marching Performance Assessment
on November 2nd at Citrus High School. This year, the band headed
out west as they presented "A Southwestern Saga".
