Join the Band!
On behalf of the Minneapolis Police Band, I would like to invite you to join the band. If you enjoy making music with other music makers and can play an instrument, the Minneapolis Police Band may be the band for you. The band always welcomes new members and is patient with those whose skills may be a little rusty.
We play a variety of music -- from show tunes, marches and big band to classical. Don't let the classical music turn you off; you may not know the title, but I’ll bet you will recognize the tune! We give several concerts throughout the year in parks and senior centers, usually on Thursday evenings.
In order to join the Minneapolis Police Band, you must be at least 18 years old, have some musical ability and may be required to pass a background check. Our band is made up of active and retired police officers, teachers, nurses, doctors, project managers, computer technicians, bus drivers and more. We even have a couple of seasoned members who have been members for over 50 years. Some of our members had not played in 10 to 20 years. They found our band and have greatly enjoyed their playing experience with us. So, dust off your instrument and start practicing! Auditions are not required.
Our regular rehearsal night is Thursday from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the 5 th Precinct, 3101 Nicollet Avenue, Minneapolis, MN 55408. So, give us a call at our business phone number, (612) 673-5717, or leave a voice message and we will get back to you.
Joan Madden, President
Minneapolis Police Band
