Learn How & Why The Theme Was Selected
With A Little Help From Our Friends
In this, the year of our 30th Great American Brass Band Festival, we have chosen a theme that embraces the roots of this all-volunteer, not-for-profit, community event.
First let us say that it could never have happened without the thousands of volunteers who have joined the GABBF effort over the last three decades. Some gave a few hours, some gave hundreds, and many continue to give every year. Your dedication is unparalleled. Thank you!
For this reason, we have selected, “With a little help from our friends” as the 2019 theme.
People from all walks of life, of all ages, and all backgrounds come together to make this special event happen every year. This type of neighbor-to-neighbor approach is one of the reasons this community is the one we all know and love.
To each and every one of you who have given of your time, your talents and your money – thank you! To all our volunteers, our donors, our sponsors we want to say we would never have made it this far without each and every one of you.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! (We simply can’t say it enough!)
And for those who are volunteering for the first time, giving for the first time and sponsoring for the first time, we say “Welcome!” You are going to enjoy your involvement with the Great American Brass Band Festival. We certainly enjoy having you working alongside us.
Here’s to the NEXT 30 years!
