The Blawenburg Band
Living the Community Band Tradition
Founded in Blawenburg, New Jersey, in 1890, the Blawenburg Band is a community band – part of a great tradition that began when towns depended on their own people to provide live music. The Band is known as one of the oldest community bands in the state, and among the most active, playing about 20-25 concerts a year at holiday parades, community celebrations, church socials, and several of the nursing homes and retirement centers in the area.
The Band’s 75+ members come from all walks of life; they range in age from their teens to their nineties, and include teachers, high school and college students, research scientists, computer specialists, homemakers, active retirees, lawyers, doctors, and many more. Some players have had years of musical training and professional experience; others learned to play as schoolchildren and are dedicated amateurs. The members are alike in one way, however: they enjoy making music together.
