The Point Loma High School Band and Colorguard Rehearse-a-thon was in full swing — and it was getting dark. It was time to bring out the generators in order to light the field — but that was not to be. The generators were gone: they were stolen from the Music Center sometime around the beginning of October.

Resourceful band boosters drove their cars to the edge of the field and turned on their headlights so the students could continue practicing and raising money for the program. Losing two Honda EU 2000 generators priced at $1,200 each is a huge blow to a program that depends on fundraisers and donations to sustain its incredible growth over the past four years. The generators, which the program had for less than a year, were also used to power electrical instruments in field competitions, and to power lights in dark parking lots after students return from the field to change out of their uniforms.

The school is investigating the theft, and is asking for the community’s help in recovering the generators. Anyone with information or offers of help can contact music director James Sepulvado at

Donations to help cover the loss can be made at the band’s website:
