Brooklin Community Band 

Illustrious History

Notes for Dan Conte

The band was formed in 2003 to play for the annual 4th of July parade and celebration in Brooklin. As with many Maine towns, Brooklin had had a town band for years in the 1900s, but not since the 1970s. Original members of the revived band still with us are Jon Hopkins (founder), Holbrook Williams, Dan Snyder, Tracy Spencer and Dick Kane, with Don and Lee Holmes joining soon after.

We now number 22 when we all show up, and we come from all over the peninsula and beyond. We practice once a week year round and are always looking for new players to join us. Please see any member of the band if you might be interested. Most of us played once in the deep, dark past and have and have found our instruments and our lips again. We perform several times a year at area nursing homes, at Last Night in Blue Hill, for the 4th, of course, and for other groups like the Brooklin Keeping Society and  Parker Ridge.
