The band rehearses weekly on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 7 – 9pm in the Carrier Dome. If there is an event the upcoming weekend, there will also be a Friday evening rehearsal. Sometimes, we have to make some changes to times and locations based upon facility availability. However, we will always let you know ahead of time. Also, you can be assured that we only work on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and some Fridays. We will not start before 7pm or exceed 6 hours per non-performance week.
