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.

Cary Arts Center - Theater
Cary, NC

The month of May has so many weird and wonderful "holidays" it can leave you in a Daze. There's May Day on the 1st and Cinco de Mayo on the 5th, Armed Forces and Memorial Day, Mothers Day, Mother Goose Day, International Tuba Day, Dance Like a Chicken Day, and more and more. Just imagine all the wonderful music that can accompany such auspicious occasions. Or, better yet, come join with us as we musically experience at least a hand-full of these events - sure to leave us all in a May Days Daze.
