With more than 30 years of community concerts and activities, the JHCB is stronger than ever sporting wonderful plans for an ever-adapting 2021-2022 season. The Band is comprised of musicians of all ages and backgrounds who are drawn together by our love of music and a commitment to enhancing Jackson Hole’s artistic and cultural environment.
During the shutdown, we continued to play individually and record holiday favorites shared virtually to the delight of our followers and the public. Your contributions have allowed us to purchase recording mixing software and hardware to make this happen, as well as aid in the purchase of protective music gear and the leasing of a larger rehearsal venue for safely resumed rehearsals in May. We continue to rehearse and practice and sustain our tradition of contributing family friendly entertainment throughout the year – ever adapting to to meet the times.
We hope you’ll consider enhancing the financial health of our organization through Old Bill’s Fun Run.
After reviewing the COVID and rehearsal survey results the board is looking into the various locations and ways we can get back together including outdoor rehearsals in the summer, indoor rehearsals of restricted sizes in the regular rehearsal room or larger groups on the CFA stage, having “pods” and each pod rehearses every other week, having shorter rehearsals with frequent breaks, and even more.
As much as we would love to return to pre-COVID normalcy, we want to make sure we keep everyone’s health and safety in mind. Any decision to return to rehearsals will be closely tied to the Teton County Health directives and as such will be subject to change as conditions change. We, the board, plan on releasing updates to band members each month to keep everyone in the organization informed.
If you have not already, we strongly urge you to set up your BAND app account. This app will become the primary communication method for rehearsal updates from here on out. If you have difficulty getting your account set up or have questions on the app you can reach out to Julie at email@example.com
As always, if you have questions, concerns, or suggestions you can reach out to the JHCB board by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org

PLEASE do not reply to this email, the account is not checked very often.
Vaccines are rolling out at a fast pace for COVID-19! This survey will help board members determine the best strategy for bringing back live JHCB rehearsals. There are plans to incorporate Zoom into rehearsals as well if you are not comfortable coming to rehearsal, but we want to know your thoughts on being in person first. Please fill this form out completely.
