Our History

The Municipal Band was established in 1935 by 13 musicians, many South Milwaukee High School graduates. By the time the band celebrated its 50th anniversary, its membership had grown to nearly 100. Over the years, the band has traveled extensively, participating in VFW and American Legion conventions around the country, playing at the New York World’s Fair, and performing on original 1860s instruments at the Civil War Centennial celebration in Galena, Illinois. Closer to home, the band has marched in countless parades, including the famous Schlitz Circus Parade and South Milwaukee’s Spectacle of Music.

Present Day

Today, although we are no longer a marching band, the “Muni” Band continues to be quite active. Our year-round performances include supporting the city of South Milwaukee at patriotic events and delighting audiences at area retirement and care facilities, summer outdoor concerts, and other venues. Our repertoire includes marches, patriotic music, Broadway and movie tunes, classical concert band arrangements, and more. The band is comprised of volunteer musicians from South Milwaukee and surrounding communities. Our members represent a wide range of professions, ages, and talents. We are life-long musicians who enjoy sharing our talents with the community. Come join in the fun with the South Milwaukee Municipal Band!

Join the Band

The South Milwaukee Municipal Band always welcomes new members. Please join us if you play a brass, woodwind, or percussion instrument. Miss playing your instrument? Dust off the cobwebs and come rehearse with us. All levels of proficiency are welcome; no auditions are required. Enjoy the fellowship with other musicians while enriching your musical skills. Membership is open to high school students and adults. We’d love to have YOU be a part of our group!

The “Muni” Band (sponsored by the South Milwaukee Recreation Department) rehearses Tuesdays (7:30 p.m. – 9:15 p.m.) in the South Milwaukee Middle School band room. (1001 15th Ave., South Milwaukee - Enter Door 2)
