Every year, the Nevada County Concert Band (NCCBand) brings back to life an era in American history when the local Sunday Band Concert was a grand social occasion.  Located in the Sierra Nevada foothills' gold country of Grass Valley and Nevada City, the NCCBand performs free concerts at public parks and local events.  In the summer, enjoy the 4-part Picnic Pops Concert Series, wave a flag at the curbside with the band at the Independence Day Parade, catch our performance at the Nevada County Fair, or join us at Constitution Day's street concert.  Our local volunteer musicians will entertain you with a fine selection of family-friendly music.  If you are seeking a true small-town experience, join the hundreds of loyal NCCBand fans at any of the variety of concerts listed at this website. Once you experience the music and fun with the Nevada County Concert Band, you’ll understand another reason why we believe that the Gold Country is so special.
