THE RENAISSANCE BAND
The Renaissance Band is a group of Renaissance musicians who
enjoy playing jazz in the tradition of the American Songbook and
the Big Band Sound. They play for fun and to contribute to the
musical and cultural experience of the Renaissance community.
The band plays once a week for practice and their own
enjoyment and four times a year for the public in the
Renaissance Ballroom. A nominal fee is charged and and admission
is on a first come – first served basis within the set-up
capacity of the ballroom.
The band, as a unit, may play for other occasions in
Renaissance at the discretion of and by consensus of the
members. In no case, however, will the Renaissance Band perform
if there is the slightest possibility that to do so will
negatively affect the income or livelihood of paid professional
musicians or entertainers.
The band has only modest requirements for money. Any costs
are charged against the proceeds from concerts.
The Renaissance Band members have different talents and
abilities. The addition of new members to the band is by
consensus of the members based on the musical needs of the band
at that time.
