Every year, the Nevada County Concert Band (NCCB) brings back to life an
era in American history when the local Sunday Band Concert was a grand social
occasion. Located in the Sierra
foothills' gold country of Grass Valley/Nevada City, the NCCB performs free concerts
at public parks and local events.
In the summer, bring a picnic to the Pioneer Park concert series, or wave
a flag at the curbside with the band at the Independence Day Parade; or enjoy
an indoor “formal” concert in the winter and spring. Our local volunteer musicians
guarantee to entertain you with a fine selection of family-friendly music.
If you are seeking a true small-town experience, join the hundreds of
loyal NCCB 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 come to understand another reason why we believe that the Gold Country
is so special.
NCCB Goes on a Concert
The Nevada County Concert Band will take
part in the National Festival of States Festival (Washington DC) and the
