Who Are We?

The Tinley Park Community Band is active year-round sharing their talent and bringing the sound of live concert band and jazz music to Tinley Park and surrounding communities. The band has been performing since 1987 throughout the Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana area.

Many of our concerts are FREE or have very affordable admission, making an afternoon or evening of live music affordable and family-friendly. The band performs a wide-ranging repertoire, including marches, show tunes, popular songs, contemporary compositions, rock classics and traditional band literature.

Representing the Village of Tinley Park, the band has made successful tours to Germany in 1994 and 2000 as part of the Tinley Park-Büdingen Sister Cities cultural exchange program and in 2004, the band represented the State of Illinois at ceremonies surrounding the dedication of the National World War II Memorial in Washington D.C.
