The Band has performed at numerous venues throughout the Baltimore-Washington area, including regular appearances at the Columbia Lakefront concerts, Columbia Festival of the Arts, Annapolis First Sunday Festival, Potomac River Jazz Society, Leisure World, and the Hebrew Home of Greater Washington as well as performing for numerous special events.. The Band typically uses 6 musicians: trumpet, trombone, saxophone/clarinet, tuba, drums, and piano; two members also do vocals.
