Experiencing a GSB concert is exciting and exhilarating. Each one is unique in both music selection, instrumentation and presentation. The band may use a full choir, dancers, strings, soloists, ensembles, even bell ringers and who could forget the BOOM of live cannons. Service to Gaston County is important to the band. You may see them at a veterans program at Memorial Park, entertaining at the Christmas Tree lighting in Downtown Gastonia, dedicating a monument on main street and even delighting the crowd at the Yule Log festival in McAdenville.
The band extends a sincere thank you to the loyal fans that enthusiastically attend their events. Thank you to the donors and sponsors that allow the band to concentrate on being the best they can be. If you are reading this and have not been to a GSB concert. WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR!!!! It is awesome and it is always offered at no charge! Please get out and support YOUR band. Make sure to come up afterwards and say hello when you are there.
The finest musicians, equipment, music, conductors, instructors and the pride of accomplishment makes up your band.
