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.

You might be a band geek if

Your instrument has its own insurance policy.

— Your Old Bills donation helps pay for operation expenses such as insurance, instrument maintenance, and new instrument purchases.

Most of our musicians have their own instrument but we encourage people who used to play to return to playing and have several instruments available for this. Also no percussionist has timpani, bass drums, cymbals, xylophone, marimba etc. so we have a closet full of percussion instruments to maintain.

Keep the music alive!

Please remember us at Old Bills 2017.

In 2017, you can give  beginning August 1st until 5 pm on September 15th. We hope you can join us Saturday, September 9th, for Old Bill’s at the Jackson Town Square!
