Welcome to the first-ever Community Band Extravaganza, hosted by the Boyertown Alumni Marching
Unit in SoulJoel’s historic SunnyBrook Ballroom. Enjoy an afternoon of music by four bands from the
Tri-County Area of Berks, Bucks, and Montgomery Counties.
The Boyertown Alumni Marching Unit was organized in 1976 to march in local Bicentennial parades.
Now, nearly 50 years later, the Spirit of America is still alive in the Unit, which performs in local concerts
and parades and has also entertained audiences in eight states and the District of Columbia. It’s most
recent road trip was to the Community Band Festival in Lake George, New York. The all-volunteer,
family-oriented organization is composed of graduates of Boyertown Area High School and other adults
who now live in the Boyertown School District.
The Quakertown Band is Bucks County’s oldest musical organization. Founded in 1877, the band is
comprised of both amateur and semi-professional musicians of all ages, many holding music degrees. The
band prides itself on presenting diverse programs, including overtures, Broadway and movie show tunes,
Big Band, swing and Dixieland music, marches and traditional band and modern Wind Ensemble
Formed in 1959 by Mr. Tom Roberts, the Pottsgrove Community Band is a group of volunteers of all
ages who come together in the love for music to perform for the community. The band presents a spring
concert each year, followed by a series of summer concerts at locations in Lower, Upper and Western
Pottsgrove, including the beautiful band shell in Sanatoga Park. The band is also a community outreach
organization and performs at nursing homes, assisted living centers and retirement communities
throughout the area.
Since its inception in 2002, the Exeter Community Band has presented summer and winter concerts at
parks, retirement communities, churches, fairs and public events. The band’s repertoire includes popular
songs, many of them arranged especially for the group by former long-time director John Jadus. Other
selections include marches and Broadway and film music.
