Keep the music alive!

Thank you to all who all who attended Old Bills, The Community Foundation of Jackson Hole, and everyone who has supported us in 2018 and through the years. We cannot thank you enough for your support!

If you have not already, there is still time donate, donations are accepted until 5 pm on Friday September 14th.  Your donation will be augmented by generous community philanthropists.

JHCB – 30 Years Strong!

2019 will mark our 30th season of community concerts and activities! At this major milestone, the JHCB continues to grow and improve in both musicianship and outreach. With your help, we hope our 30th season will be the best one yet! Comprised of musicians of all ages and backgrounds, drawn together through a shared love of music and a commitment to enhancing Jackson Hole’s artistic and cultural character, we hope you’ll consider supporting the financial health of the Band this year through Old Bill’s Fun Run.

Thanks to this support we have been able to continue our efforts to create fun and unique concerts for the community such as last season’s “A Wrinkle in 3/4 Time” spring concert musical time traveling adventure. Your donation through Old Bills Fun Run helps to buy new music, keeps our performance trailers rolling, pay rent in our rehearsal space in the Jackson Hole Center for the Arts, and supply our equipment and instrument needs, among many other things.

We have many exciting events planned for this anniversary season, and we hope that you will be along for the ride with us!

Thank you from all of the Jackson Hole Community Band Members.

Music: Since the Beginning

Stop. Listen. Is your radio or TV on? I’ll bet you hear music, even if it’s in the background. Music permeates our lives, sometimes creating suspense but usually providing fun.

In the mid ’80s we formed a brass quintet in Jackson and played for various community events. Some of us said, “It sure would be nice to have a band.” So, we started the Jackson Hole Community Band, now nearly 3 decades ago.

“Community Band” has at least 2 connotations. It’s a concert band that is comprised of members of the Jackson Hole Community (extending into Teton Valley, Star Valley, and Pinedale/Big Piney). It’s also a band for the community, playing for many occasions in the community: holiday parades, town square lightings, ground-breaking and dedicatory ceremonies for schools and hospital expansion, concerts in public schools, combined concerts with high school and adult vocal groups, and every Old Bill’s Fun Run’s annual “party” in Jackson. Spin-off groups from the band provide TubaChristmas and special music presentations in local churches, as well as concerts of their own. The results are usually measured in smiles and happiness. Yes, music is fun – to hear and to play. Since the beginning, having fun – and providing enjoyment for our many and varied audiences – have been hallmarks of our Jackson Hole Community Band – in all aspects.

Farmers Market Petting Zoo

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!
