Thank you for visiting the online home of the Nevers’ 2nd Regiment Band!

2014 marks the beginning of an exciting time for the band!  I am very pleased to have been named Director this year after serving as Interim Director last year and being a member of the band since 2004.  It is all the more significant to me as only 12 people have held the title in the 150+ year history of the band!

Over the past few seasons, the group has continued to modernize while honoring our roots as a military band.  Our concerts regularly feature a full-sized band of approximately 40 highly talented musicians.  We are considered a professional community band and over the years have included a wide range of members from doctors and lawyers to composers, music educators and students.

Nevers’ Band Concerts are an exciting and fun experience for the whole family!  Our diverse repertoire includes popular numbers, patriotic music, classic orchestral transcriptions, music from motion pictures and more!  At any given concert you may hear anything from the 1812 Overture to the music of the Beatles.  This year we plan to feature more soloists throughout the season, showcasing some of the wonderful talent found within our ranks!

Last year we covered the state with music performances as far away as the Hampton Beach Band Shell and Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site in Cornish.  This year’s schedule is shaping up to be just as exciting, with details posted on this site soon!  As always, we hope you will join us at our Tuesday night summer concerts throughout the city of Concord!
