The Cary Town Band (Cary, NC) is reminiscent of the turn of the 20th century bands led by Sousa, Goldman, and others who popularized band concerts all over America. Presenting concerts recreating that bygone era, the band plays marches from many nations, circus music, waltzes, rags, polkas, famous overtures, and other “pops” classical music of the 1860’s to 1920’s with an occasional nod to more modern fare.

Picture this band (as above) or in classic period uniforms at events sponsored by your organization. Providing indoor and outdoor concerts for patriotic events, ceremonies, and civic events, the band is available for performances.

The Cary Town Band rehearses on Thursday evenings. If you would like to be a part of a "town band" experience, or to add such an experience to your event, or just for more information, please contact director Stuart Holoman.

It's December again, time for the band to join with the Cary Senior Center in our ninth annual musical celebration of the holiday season, Winterfest '17. As requested, we'll continue to have the very popular carol sing-along. (Be sure to cast your vote for your favorite carols.) We will again feature a few smaller ensembles of band members bringing you holiday favorites. There'll be music to celebrate your favorite holiday festivities - Hanukkah, Winter Solstice, Christmas, maybe New Years, and of course, a Sleigh Ride or two. Come enjoy all your favorite holiday melodies at Winterfest '17.
