The staple of DMB activity remains the "century plus" tradition of summer concerts. Presented in accessible parks settings, these performances encourage family gatherings and are performed by the area's leading professional players. Many of the musicians also play with other fine ensembles such as the Colorado Symphony, Colorado Ballet, Opera Orchestras, Denver Brass, and the Queen City Jazz Band.
The Denver Municipal Band is re-establishing the year round activity it enjoyed in the 19th and early 20th centuries. In addition to the full forty-piece concert band, the DMB family of ensembles includes a 17- piece jazz band, jazz combo, brass band, plus woodwind and brass quintets. These smaller groups regularly present concerts in schools and community centers.
