The Northport Community Band is Back!

The Northport Community Band is thrilled to announce our return to LIVE performances each Thursday evening in July in Northport Village Park!

Beginning July 1 at 8:30 pm, the Robert W. Krueger Bandstand will once again ring with the sounds of your musical friends and neighbors in a summertime tradition since 1959. As they carefully emerge from a long quarantine, they will be featuring members of the Band in smaller groups that don’t always get the spotlight, culminating with the full band in our final weeks: July 1 – Mr. Jack Daniel’s Original Silver Cornet Band featuring the French Horn Ensemble; July 8 – The NCB Low Brass Collective plus the Jazz Orchestra Quintet; July 15 – The Northport Community Jazz Orchestra Big Band; July 22 – Return of the FULL Northport Community Concert Band, guest conductor Tom Gellert and surprises; July 29 – Season Finale with the full band, Armed Forces Salute with American Legion Post #694 and the 1812 Overture with cannons.

The band has a contingency rain site! If the weather threatens, the evening’s performance will move to Northport High School. Announcements will be made beginning at 3:00 pm on the Band’s website, and our Facebook page; and loyal audience members can sign up for instant updates by sending an email to [email protected] or texting @e82cbb to 81010.

Every concert is also live streamed and archived at, where all of last year’s virtual concerts can still be found. Rain or shine, there’s great LIVE music ahead. Bring your folding chairs, beach blankets and a picnic dinner and celebrate the band’s 63rd musical summer.

P. S. Don’t forget to “bring a can to the concert!” Long Island Cares will once again accept non-perishable food donations every week, and each item is worth a raffle ticket for valuable prizes – including guest conducting “The Stars and Stripes Forever” at the final concert!

Current and retired Northport Staff who are NCB members: Don Sherman, Director; Remy D’Esposito, Chris Zacher; joe Hinton; Ellen McCarthy; and lots of alumni!
