Join the Band

The band is made of musicians from Sun Prairie and surrounding communities. Our members come from all musical backgrounds - from professional musicians and music educators - to engineers, teachers and students who enjoy playing in their free time.

The band is open to all skills levels and there are no auditions to join.  We invite you to come try one rehearsal, play a concert with us, or become one of the many longstanding members of the band.  Even if it’s been a while since you have played, dust off your horn or sticks and give it a try!


The band practices on Sunday nights from 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. at the Prairie Phoenix Academy in Sun Prairie. Take Kroncke Drive to Cardinal Heights Upper Middle School, and go to the building at the east end of Ashley Field, the football stadium.

We do take breaks on occasion throughout the year, so please email us at to find out the next time we will be rehearsing.
