We are a group of musicians with “day jobs” that play music together for the joy of it. All volunteers, we hail from backgrounds as diverse as engineering, law, real estate, and the clergy and range in age from early-teens to the eighties.
Newcomers, walk-ins, and visitors are always welcome. If you can read music and have some experience please dust off your instrument and join us. Many of our members have had a 20 to 30 year gap when they joined the band. Our conductor selects a variety of music to challenge all abilities. We rehearse Thursday nights from 7:00 to 9:00 upstairs in the Arts Center performing arts wing, between Glenwood & Cache. Our season runs from September through the Fourth of July, with brief breaks at Christmas and Spring Break.
College credit through Central Wyoming College (CWC) available. Go to http://jhcband.org/member-resources/ for more information.
We have 3 more rehearsals before our Winter Solstice Celebration concert. If you are thinking about joining us come sit in with “your section” and meet our members. 12/4, 12/11, & 12/18

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.
