Musicians

The Waunakee Community Band was started by Jan Tweed while she was still Music Department Head for Waunakee Schools 30 years ago. (So we are both celebrating 30 years.) Jan Tweed is a legend in her own time in Waunakee and indeed throughout the state in Music Education circles. The original band had thirty members and over a third of those are still in the band - including me. The WCB has around 100 members on the roster and typically performs with 70 to 80 players. The WCB Big Band was started last fall by several members of the Waunakee Community Band, including Ken Davies and me. We have performed at Olbrich Gardens and at Rex's Innkeeper in Waunakee.

The Waunakee Community Band is a non-profit organization. As a component of the Waunakee Community Band, the WCB Big Band is also all volunteer. All proceeds from our St Patrick's Dance go to the support all the musical activities of the Waunakee Community Band. So we hope people for a good time and to support this great organization.
