The Brattleboro American Legion Band is always looking for new members. We encourage anyone who plays a standard band instrument to play with us.
Come to as many rehearsals as you can. Our rehearsals are every Wednesday night, 7 PM to 9:00 PM, at Brattleboro Legion Post #5 in Brattleboro, VT. We do not rehearse the 3rd Wednesday of most months.
We play a wide variety of music: patriotic tunes, Marches, Broadway medleys, classical, pops and memorable tunes from the Big Band Era. Most music is at the high school level.
Bring your instrument to a Wednesday practice We provide instruments only for percussionists and some of the larger instruments (such as a sousaphone).
We perform…in approximately 4-5 local parades a year with three formal concerts as well as several outdoor venues during the summer. See our current schedule.
These performances pay our bills, including uniforms, travel expenses, and our trip to the National Legion Convention where we compete against other bands. You’re expected to participate in as many of these performances as you can.
We are a fun group. Expect to have a lot of fun playing music and making new friends.
What We Don’t Require
You do not need to be a Legion member to play with the band, nor do you need to be a veteran.
You can play with us at any age. Our youngest member is in their teens. We have several octogenarians in the band, and of course, we have all ages in between!
There is no fee to join the band. We will provide a uniform.
