About Us

Music Variety — Something for Everyone

We're unique in that we play as a 40-piece Concert Band, a 20-piece Jazz Band, and contract to a show band, a brass quintet or smaller ensembles. Because of our flexibility, we play everything — orchestral, rock, soul, and funk. Our Concert Band, which plays the most frequently, performs a wide variety of music including movie scores, showtunes, Big Band standards, marches, and other classic masterpieces.
