The Jackson Hole Community band is a 30-piece ensemble founded in 1989. We rehearse nearly year-around to provide free entertainment – from old favorites by Duke Ellington, to toe tapping marches by Sousa, to classics by Mussorgsky, at many community events, public concerts, and parades. Our members, all volunteers, hail from backgrounds as diverse as engineering, software, medicine, law, real estate, and the clergy and range in age from early-teens to the eighties. We have no skill level requirement or auditions, but prefer people who have played at least the junior high skill level. Most members have had a 15- to 20- year break before joining. It’s never too late to join! To supply musical accompaniment to special events for the benefit of both the musicians and the audience.
The Jackson Hole Community Band is excited to participate in the 2016 Jackson Hole Farmers Market on Saturday, September 3rd, as the non profit of the week. Please help us make music possible by supporting our local farmers this Saturday and stocking your cupboards with fresh fruits and vegetables, flowers, chocolates, homemade pies, scones, and much more.
By shopping at the market you are supporting local area growers and fresh food vendors as well as contributing to worthwhile causes in our community. Instead of charging Farmers Market Vendors to sell on the Town Square each Saturday, they donate 10% of their weekly revenues to the featured Non-Profit of the Week.
The Jackson Hole Community Band will be there with our petting zoo instruments. Be sure to stop by our booth, have a cup of coffee, beat on the bass drum, and meet the musicians. We look forward to seeing you there!

To donate by mail: Old Bills Donor Form After more than 25 years of Spring, Old West Days, July 4th, Old Bills, Halloween and Christmas and other concerts and activities, the JHCB is getting stronger than ever, with plans for a fantastic 2016-2017 season. Comprised of musicians of all ages and backgrounds from right here in the Jackson area, drawn together by a love of music and a commitment to enhancing Jackson Hole’s artistic and cultural environment, we hope you’ll consider enhancing the financial health of the Band through Old Bills Fun Run. For example, your contributions last year allowed us to add a vibraphone and new music to our repertoire, adding to the excitement of our “Night at the Movies” concert last season. We promise to continue practicing hard and pushing our limits to sustain our tradition of contributing fun and entertainment to Jackson Hole events throughout the year.
