About the Band:

2019-2020 marked the 45th anniversary of your community band! The band draws adult musicians from the Palouse region of Eastern Washington and North Idaho, as well as surrounding communities. We perform regularly throughout the year with venues catering to people of all ages including families and youth. A subset of band members also performs as the German band, Auf Gehts, and has been doing so for nearly 40 years. An additional subset of the band, CBOP, Sr., plays regular concerts at area senior residences and care centers. Follow the link to read more about this program!

We welcome interested musicians to dust off their instruments and join us. See website pages for more information. Contact Us
