Community Band

The Community Band has been performing together for more than thirty years.

(Click here for a photo of a performance many years ago. See if you can find any current members!).


We are a supporting entity of VFW Post 2093 performing 12 to 15 concerts annually for special occasions such as:

Memorial Day Ceremony Christmas Concerts
Veterans Day Parade Independence Day Celebration
Various Church Socials Various Community ‘Days’

The Band Rehearses one night each week and “NEW” members are invited to join to make music and socialize. Join us – you’ll be glad you did!

The Community Band is under the Direction of Wilbur "Smitty" Smith who can be reached at smuffsan@gmail.com or 407-671-7447.

The Band President is Dan Slage who can be reached at dslage@steadfastdata.com.
