We are an organization of volunteer musicians from Baldwin and the surrounding Counties.
We are committed to enhancing the cultural environment of the area by providing free concerts to the public. Members come from all walks of life. A common thread for all of us is our love of music, the desire to perform and the ability to play.
Local musicians Regina Bush and Tom Robinson, Director of Continuing Education Faulkner State Community College Borden Morrow, and band directors Joe Riemer and Steve Sims founded the band in May 1997.
Joe is the retired director of the Bay Minette Middle School band; Steve is the former director of the Fairhope High School band.
Then Fairhope Mayor James Nix of Fairhope, Doctors Gary Branch and John Borum of Faulkner State Community College, and Dean Mosher of the Fairhope Single Tax Colony Corp provided moral and financial support.
We feel this has been a community team effort with support from the media, city leaders, city employees, and individuals who provide lighting and sound.
We perform all types of music: Classical, Broadway, Big Band, Dixieland, Jazz, and Marches to name a few.
