In 1970, the band was reorganized into its present two groups. The Marching Band consists of adults and high school students and appears in several parades each year from June through July or early August. The Concert Band membership is limited to post high school age musicians and provides entertainment throughout the community year round, performing summer concerts in the parks and winter concerts at numerous venues in the Twin Cities.
Marching Band rehearsals are open to all adults and high school students. There are no fees. There are no try-outs. Band members are required to provide an all white Tee-shirt, white socks and white shoes as part of the marching uniform. In order to promote uniformity, the shoes are ordered for the members by the band. Currently the cost of a pair of shoes is thirty dollars. All other parts of the uniform are provided by the band.
Band rehearsals begin the first Tuesday in April and run through July. Rehearsal time is from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM in the band room at the Robbinsdale Middle School (old Robbinsdale High School) at 38th and Toledo Avenue North, Robbinsdale, Minnesota.
In all its rehearsals and performances the band strives to achieve the following goals:
