brass band

We practice every Thursday at 7:30PM, February through December at Zem Zem Shrine. We welcome new members with any level of skill.
Contact J.B. Salter for details.

Our goal for 2022 is to acquire more members in order to survive.All woodwind and brass instruments are needed. Clarinets, saxophones, flutes, trumpets, trombones, baritones, tubas and percussion. Music played is mid-level degree of difficulty.

Masons, women as well as teenagers are encouraged to join.

Concerts are played throughout the year, plus optional participation riding on a float in parades is possible.
Socializing is available in Zem Zem Well before and after practice.



After not playing trombone for close to 60 years, I dusted off my old horn and started to play again. Even though I was very apprehensive, I bit the bullet and joined the Zem Zem Brass Band. This past June, after all those years, I played my first gig at the Shriner’s Hospital Open House and had a great time and felt much satisfaction in playing again.
Although I’m not up to par with the rest of the guys yet, I am improving and enjoying it. Forget your trepidation and come join us Thursday nights 7:30-9:00. We could really use more people and would welcome your help no matter the skill level. We have a great band director in Bob Reid.

Give me a Call…
