The Jacksonville Community Band is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization created to share the gift of music with the entire community. The band’s musicians come from all walks of life and are drawn together by the common bond of musical appreciation and performance that only participation in a traditional Concert Band can provide.
Founded in 1998 by the late Dr. William "Bill" Moffit, the band continues to provide musical entertainment for the Greater Jacksonville metropolitan and surrounding areas and gives amateur musicians an outlet through which to perform and a fantastic place to make friends.
The band is under the co-direction of Mr. Reginald Johnson and Mr. Jerry Carter. Both are well respected musicians and instructors in the Duval County School system, Mr. Johnson and Mr. Carter are alumnus of Bethune-Cookman College of Music . Mr. Carter earned his Master's degree in Music Education from Jacksonville University. Mr Johnson and Mr Carter's background in music has given the band the opportunity to perform a vast repertoire of pieces that are both enjoyable and challenging to play. From marches to patriotic arrangements to concert band adaptations of classic masterpieces, the musicians of the Jacksonville Community Band have performed virtually every genre of music imaginable at venues all across the First Coast!
