Starting Thursday September 8th, the Downriver Community Band will be performing a makeup performance at HuRoc Park. They will start at 6:30pm and end at 8pm.
The Downriver Community Band (DCB), founded in 1989, is a volunteer group of adult musicians who play wind and percussion instruments. The DCB’s mission is to give non-professional adult musicians a dynamic and enriching opportunity to perform, positively contribute to the cultural environment of the Downriver area and perform in a venue that allows and encourages personal musical expression and growth. Our group is comprised of players with various musicianship levels. Members come from all walks of life.
Although our focus is on local venues and rehearsal spaces to support our musical palette, the group has participated in several road trips. We have been invited to partake in state festivals like The Motor City Festival of Bands. Many of our members have represented the band in New York City in 2019 for the Association of Concert Bands (ACB) Annual National Convention, as well as Hawaii for both the 70th & 75th anniversaries commemorating of the bombing of Pearl Harbor.
As a concert band, we enjoy performing a wide variety of light and popular tunes transcribed or arranged for wind ensembles. Our programs consist of marches, big band, classical, jazz, show tunes, contemporary and original musical compositions.
This weekend also brings the Flat Rock Historical Society Rummage Sale. That will take place at the Historical Village at 25486 Gibraltar Road behind the library. The sale runs Friday and Saturday September 9-10th from, 9am-4pm.
The City-Wide Garage Sale also runs this weekend on September 10-11th. Permits can be purchased at City Hall.
