North Texas Community Bands

The Dallas-Ft. Worth area has more community bands per capita than anywhere in the United States. The Dallas Winds has invited many of them to perform at our headquarters (the Fair Park Bandshell) as part of our Starlight Band Concert Series.

Here is a listing of the bands in our area. Please support your local band by attending their concerts… or get that dusty old horn out of your closet and join up!
