Jubilee band seeks members

The Heart O’ Texas Jubilee Band is seeking to enlarge its membership and invite all those locally and in area towns that might be interested in joining. The group usually performs three to four times per year, and students and adults are equally welcome. “We know many adults have not played their instrument in a number of years, but given a little time and practice, the ability to do so will return,” said band director James Mallow. The community band was formed several years ago for the opportunity of former musicians to continue their music. The band usually performs in the summer and at Christmas. Members are from Brady, San Saba, Brownwood, Mason and other surrounding communities with ages ranging from 15 to 84. Recently through a grant from the G. Rollie White Trust, the group purchased uniform vests and a tuba, as well as some music. “We are gradually building our inventory and would accept any donations of instruments,” said Mallow. Beginning Tuesday, April 17, the band will meet at 7 p.m. in the old Brady Junior High School band hall. They will meet each Tuesday evening, preparing to take part in the Brady July Jubilee activities. For more information, call Mallow at 915-597-2373 or stop by the band hall on April 17 for the rehearsal.
