Join Us!

We are a community band from Southeast Wisconsin with playing opportunities for musicians of all abilities, ranging in age from high school to post retirement.  Our desire is to create a quality musical experience for the musicians as well as the audience.  

Our members collaborate in both a full concert band, and a big band, known as the Swing Street Big Band. Both bands perform at all of our formal concerts. We usually perform four formal concerts each year, at Nathan Hale High School in West Allis, and another 6-8 concert per year within our local community, such as retirement centers, and community events.

Members of both bands meet weekly, September thru May, on Thursday evenings at the Nathan Hale High School Band Room. The Concert Band rehearses from 7 pm to 8:30 pm, and the Swing Street Big Band rehearses from 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm.

The Suburban Concert Band and the Swing Street Big Band are programs affiliated with the West Allis - West Milwaukee Recreation Department. Membership dues are about $30/year, to help pay for rehearsal and concert sites, new music, and professional music conductors.

We'd love for you to join us!
