Every year, the Nevada County Concert Band (NCCB) brings back to life an era in American history when the local Sunday Band Concert was a grand social occasion.  Located in the Sierra foothills' gold country of Grass Valley/Nevada City, the NCCB performs free concerts at public parks and local events.

In the summer, bring a picnic to the Pioneer Park concert series, or wave a flag at the curbside with the band at the Independence Day Parade; or enjoy an indoor “formal” concert in the winter and spring.  Our local volunteer musicians guarantee to entertain you with a fine selection of family-friendly music.

If you are seeking a true small-town experience, join the hundreds of loyal NCCB fans at any of the variety of concerts listed at this website. Once you experience the music and fun with the Nevada County Concert Band, you’ll come to understand another reason why we believe that the Gold Country is so special.

NCCB Announces a New Music Scholarship!
The Nevada County Concert Band has concluded its selection for the new Jerry Foote Scholarship for music students.  The winner(s) will be announced soon!  See the details here.

Join the Band
We are always seeking new musicians!  All instrument players are welcome who can read music well.  Young and old sit side by side, and we enjoy having family members become part of our band family.  Not every member can be at every performance, so we welcome new musicians!  Click here for more information about joining the band.  Rehearsals are at Nevada Union High School’s band room I-3 in Grass Valley on Mondays 6:30-9:00pm. Bring your instrument, and join in the fun!
