About the Band

The Naperville Municipal Band has been entertaining the people of Naperville and the surrounding suburbs since 1859.  The band has grown from a group of dedicated musicians whose vision brought them together in 1859 to its current 70+ member roster. 

A typical Thursday night in the summer finds Central Park in Naperville packed with fans of all ages listening and enjoying the Naperville Municipal Band concert.  Each weekly concert has a theme and includes a wide variety of familiar musical selections that will entertain the entire family. The concerts start at 7:30pm in Naperville's Central Park and all concerts are free and no tickets are needed.   Park benches are provided, but feel free to bring your own chair. 


For each concert, a local charity hosts a bake sale that often includes baked goods a some drinks.   It's also quite common for concert-goers come early and bring a picnic supper to enjoy in the park.  And of course, all concert-goers of all ages are invted to tap their toes, dance in the grass and simply enjoy a summer evening of quality music and fun.
