Why Join? 

Ask any New Orleans band alumni why they love band so much and many of them will tell you:


  • "It kept me off the streets"

  • "It made a way for me to go to college"

  • "It gave me a father figure/someone I could look up to"

  • "It taught me leadership and other skills"

Please take a look at each category to apply for the membership that best fits you!
