The Rockport Legion Band is Recruiting!

We’re looking for additional players on ALL concert band instruments. If you were a competent player in high school or college and have “lapsed” in your playing, this is the place to get back to playing on a regular basis! If you are a current player looking for a regular rehearsal venue, this is it! If you play any of the instruments on our “Wish List” to the right, please contact us.

We do not audition or have a “play-in”. Come join us for a few rehearsals and see if you’d like to become a member. If you’re interested or have questions, please leave a comment to that effect.

You can “check us out” on any of our recording links — either Cape Ann Web or Jukebox Alive in the column on the right, or on our “Recordings” page at the top of your screen.

Performances for May, 2012

We had three appearances during the month of May this year. Two were at rehab facilities, and the third was an easy-access performance in Harvey Park (Rockport) at 1:00 P.M. on May 19 (during the Chamber of Commerce Motif #1 Day festivities). The actual program is posted on our “Previous Concert Programs” page.

First Rehearsal of 2012!

Our first rehearsal in the new year will be Thursday, January 5 at 7:30 P.M. in the Legion Hall. Where does the time go??

Bob Krause should be there to discuss our options for investment. This is an important topic for our future; we hope everyone will be able to make it.

We had an excellent performing year in 2011. Let’s hope our playing in 2012 is even better!

Happy New Year! Come Join Us.

Our first rehearsal of 2011 will be January 6 at 7:30 in the Legion Hall on Beach Street. If you’re coming to play with us for the first time, make sure you have directions by contacting us at our mail address.

We have some exciting new music as well as some gems from our library scheduled for the evening, so bring an extra set of lips (and a musician friend or two) and get set for an enjoyable couple of hours of playing.
