About Us

Band Boosters of Lake Zurich (BBLZ – pronounced bubbles)  is a voluntary band parent group that all parents are a part of simply because your son/daughter is in the LZHS Band.  While members are parents of LZHS students, BBLZ supports the entire District 95 Band Program.

BBLZ helps the LZHS Band become an exciting adventure for your student throughout their time at Lake Zurich High School. We assist the band’s directors, Josh Thompson and Sheri Conover, with special events, fundraising, and help out with other band related needs as required.  We’re always looking to add new, productive members to BBLZ and encourage you to come to our next meeting. All BBLZ meeting are usually held the third Tuesday of the month at 7 pm in the Band Room.
