Book The John Walter Band
The JWB delivers a wonderful music experience to Cape May County residents and vacationers throughout the year. Our summer concert series typically begins in mid- May and ends in early September. The holiday concert series runs from late November to mid-December.
Our concerts are “FREE” and open to the public. In addition, the JWB performs at handicap accessible venues only, and the band entertains audiences at public and private venues including churches, retirement centers, city parks, the CMC Park and Zoo, community centers and local festivals.
The John Walter Band is available for Public and Private events and continues to seek new venues to perform and new ways to support and encourage music education. Our modest fee structure is customarily formed to off-set cost.
John Walter Band Quintet PLUS
As the John Walter Concert Band continues to expand musically with a focus on our communities, the organization has created a new ensemble that is available to perform at smaller venues and special events. The JWB Quintet PLUS is a unique group of very talented musicians performing contemporary selections in the style of the great Brass Quintets.
The moniker Quintet PLUS refers to the mix of artists selected to enhance the music selections. This includes doubling parts, adding percussion, inserting non-brass instruments and in general, creating distinctive presentations to popular arrangements. So, it’s not always a pure Quintet … it’s a Quintet PLUS
