About Show Band Membership

The Ontario Chaffey Community Show Band is ALWAYS looking for talented new musicians to join our band!  Band members are not just from Ontario, but represent at least 2 dozen nearby communities as well.  There is no audition required to join and we have a wide range of talent levels, from folks who are just dusting off their horns, to those playing at an expert level and teaching at collegiate levels.  There is room for everyone in our band, and we welcome everyone, no matter your proficiency, with the belief that music is life long experience to be shared with the whole community.

We rehearse every Monday night from 7-9pm at Chaffey High School in the Jack Mercer Music Hall.  Just drop by with your instrument any Monday night and say hello, and we'll be happy to get you a seat in the right section, give you some music and introduce you to some friendly folks.  Or, if you prefer to let us know in advance, and we'll make sure to greet you at the door and make you feel welcome when you get there!

Our performances are once every month on Monday evenings in the historic Gardiner Spring Auditorium and occationally at the new Ontario Town Square Bandshell in downtown Ontario.  We'd love to have you as a part of our Show Band!

Questions?  Feel free to email us at pr@showband.net and we'll be happy to get back to you.
