In the spirit of the great American Peace Jubilee of 1869 under the direction of the noted musician and composer Patrick S. Gilmore comes the Peace Jubilee Brass Band founded by Alexander Pollock.
This band presents the latest and the most favorite tunes of the late 19th and early 20th century using historic over-the-shoulder brass instruments that were commonly used by community brass bands across America after the Civil War. To add to the occasion, the band will appear in appropriate dress to add to the authenticity of the event. The music is comprised of polkas, quick steps, schottisches, marches, and even waltzes, where couples are allowed to embrace each other—scandalous!
The PJBB performs for military balls and ballroom dancing, gazebo concerts, dedication ceremonies, military reenactments, and historical demonstrations. Please call (734) 995-4417 or email for further details.
