What is the Maynard Community Dance Band?

The Maynard Community Dance Band is a smaller group of musicians many of whom also play in the concert band. This group was formed to give our members an opportunity to play big band and classic dance band music.

Some of our songs include "Stardust," "Zoot Suit Riot," "In The Mood," and "Woodchopper's Ball." Newer selections include "When You Wish Upon a Star", "Spanish Eyes," and "Teddy Bears' Swingin' Picnic." These new songs are sure to become new favorites. We are always rehearsing new songs to expand our repertoire.

Where has the Maynard Community
Dance Band performed?

The Maynard Community Dance Band has played at a variety of concert locations.

Our most recent concert was a fund-raising concert which was held at the Tewksbury-Wilmington Elks in Tewksbury. The concert at the Acme Theater in Maynard, "Swing into the Holidays," combined our traditional dance band music with holiday selections.

In the past 2 years we have played 2 concerts sponsored by the Maynard Public Library: one for the Roosevelt School Reunion held at the Maynard Public Library and one at the Knights of Columbus Hall.

We have also played at the Maynard Farmer's Market, class reunions, private parties, and 2 dance band only summer concerts at Memorial Park in Maynard.
