About Us

The Jefferson Township Community Band was formed in 1992 under the direction of Peter Tummillo, Jr., then Director of the Jefferson Township High School instrumental and marching bands.  The Band operates under the umbrella of the Jefferson Arts Committee, and Mr. Tummillo continues to direct the Concert Band in addition to the newer Jazz Band. Because of interest, several members of the Community Band and others formed a Jazz Band several years ago, and they usually practice an hour earlier than the Community Band on Monday nights.

The music of the concert band encompasses the classics, Broadway musicals, standard marches, and patriotic salutes; and the Concert and Jazz Bands usually open the Summer Gazebo Concert Series. The Concert Band performs at every Christmas in the Village event, the Jazz Band hosts and performs a Big Band Bash Dinner event, and both bands perform in a spring concert. In addition, the bands often collaborate with other groups and perform by invitation.
