The Hometown Band
of Matching Funds Remaining
The Hometown Band is a community band of all volunteers of many ages, levels of experience and abilities. We enjoy performing Spring, Summer, Octoberfest and concerts around and near Kitsap County. We welcome new opportunities to share our music, marches, polkas, show music, light classical and traditional band music.
The Hometown Band has performed 17 concerts for Kitsap area non-profit organizations and public venues in the past 12 months. An average of 40 band members attended each concert, and more than 2,000 people of all ages and backgrounds heard the band play. The repertoire ranged from symphonic compositions from the 1800s to popular and seasonal tunes. A simple outcomes measurement (mailed questionnaire) system has allowed us to see comments such as, "My family and I enjoyed your concert so much, and I am now motivated to dust off my trumpet!"
Our band is made up entirely of volunteers who devote themselves to performing their best and ensuring that the organization is well run and known in the community. Donated funds from the Kitsap Great Give will make it possible to buy needed equipment and new sheet music that will strengthen our performances.
