About Us

The current Barrington Band is comprised of approximately 35 - 40 members, ranging in age from pre-teens to 80+. We play a wide range of band music, including marches and medleys, Big Band numbers, Broadway-style show selections, and seasonal compositions. The Band has a rich history as well as an interesting past. Some of the most notable highlights are:

  • The Band has performed in 17 Mummers' parades.
  • The Band performed for the inauguration of New Jersey Governor Harold Hoffman.
  • The Band provided entertainment on the train to the shore, then on Wildwood Boardwalk (before the wide-spread use of cars).
  • The Band currently performs an annual concert at the gazebo in Cape May, New Jersey.

As a community band, we have the reputation of being entertaining, fun to listen to, as well as having excellent musicianship. Please check out the other pages on this website for further information about us, our history and our repertoire. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.

Interested in Hiring Us?

We are a community band that plays throughout the Southern New Jersey Area, specifically in Camden, Burlington, and Gloucester counties, and in the summer at Cape May, N.J.. We play for outdoor events, as well as for residents in nursing or retirement homes. We generally play patriotic music, selections from a movie or show, as well as religious and seasonal music. The music we play for individual events is appropriate for the event and its location, and our fees are reasonable.

If there is a need for a specific song, please let us know so we can accommodate your request.  A sample list of music is in our repertoire.  The list  provides a sampling of the wide range of music we play.

Anyone needing more information or interested in hiring us should send a message through our contact us page.

Interested in playing with us?

We are always open to new faces and new talent. We have openings in many of the Woodwind, Brass, and Percussion sections, and are especially in need of French Horns and Woodwinds.

We rehearse on Tuesday nights from 7:30 to 9:30 pm in the Barrington Senior Center, adjacent to the Barrington Municipal Complex on Haines Ave. between 2nd and 3rd Aves. Our performances are usually scheduled for a Tuesday night, in place of a rehearsal.

We do not require an audition, and do not charge dues for membership. We are a year-round band which does not march, and we remain a place where musicians of all ages (currently from teens to 80+) can play. We maintain a “High-class act” where you are not afraid to bring your children.

Any interested musician should should send a message through our contact us page.
