Our band consists of people from all walks of life with ages ranging from 8 to 80.
Our primary focus has always been the music but over the years the social aspect
has also become very important. We are a family band who not only enjoys playing
music together but also enjoys playing. Whether it's bowling, pool volleyball, attending
concerts, or a simple cook out, we enjoy the benefits of a large, extended family.
There are a variety of musical abilities within our band and we make every effort
to include the beginner to the experienced in all performances. All members are taught
from within the band free of charge. Members are free to participate in as many events
as their time allows.
They are free to learn at their own pace with no pressure to perform.
We participate in many community events in our area and beyond. We do not charge
a fee for charitable or Veterans events. You may see us marching in the BIG parades
but you'll also find us at cancer benefits, memorial ceremonies, or other special
In three words, what we are about is MUSIC, FRIENDSHIP, and FAMILY.
