Musicians Wanted!

Have you ever wanted to be in a band but didn’t think you were good enough? If so, we’re the band you are looking for. Our band is full of fun-loving musicians who enjoy playing music (to the best our abilities) and appreciate being a part of an ensemble. We would like to share the opportunity with others to dust off their instruments and join in the fun! (Course Outline PDF) (Registration Form PDF)

To get an idea of what we are up to, take a listen to a medley of tunes by George M. Cohan recorded by the band.
