The Essex Community Concert Band is a recreational band consisting of woodwind, brass and percussion that performs several times a year throughout the community. The band includes 40+ Essex County area residents – from students to professionals – who join together under the direction of Dee Shaw to share in our love of music. Our Wednesday evening rehearsals and concerts take place year round.



Thank you to everyone who came to support our concert ‘Everything, Including the Kitchen Sink’! We had a great day sharing our wide selection of music from different genres, eras and styles! Congratulations to both Abby Erwied and Susan Birch on the debut performance of their arrangements.


It’s now time for one of our favourite times of years – Summer Concert Season!


We will be kicking off the summer season with our first concert on Wednesday, June 21st, 7PM at Heritage Gardens, by the Train Station in Essex. Bring a chair or blanket, and come enjoy an evening of fun music with the band!
