Welcome to our 2017 Season! We hope to see all our regular fans and lots of new ones at our performances this year
If you attend our regular series concerts in either Staunton or Mt. Olive, please note that we give unique concerts each and every Thursday in June and July, regardless of which town we’re in. So, Staunton and Mt. Olive fans can attend concerts at both places and get eight great nights under the stars instead of only four!
Every year the band is honored to participate in Memorial Day ceremonies. Please come to one of those ceremonies to honor our fallen military. The times listed below are the times the band begins playing pre-ceremony selections.
