YouthBands, Inc. (tm) was officially formed in March 2011, and through our efforts, YouthBands(tm) is revitalizing the musical talent of our youth by providing an environment and resources in which musically talented youth, ages 9 to 19 can form a band, practice regularly, and perform in a variety of venues. Another goal of YouthBands.org(tm) is to identify new venues and sponsors to support our bands, to have live exhibitions of our bands as they progress. Exhibitions include an annual event, our “Back-to-School Bash”, as well as other locations such as sponsor locations, malls, festivals, and many other family oriented venues. Many of the youths in our bands have life-long goals to pursue the musical arts as a career. Our goal is to provide a stepping stone to help them succeed at their goal. Each bands’ membership is FREE the first year. Bands must follow strict guidelines for membership and performances, and are encouraged to practice often and even find their own “gigs” where they can show off their talent and skill. Bands can specialize in almost any genre of music, following the guidelines and values in keeping with our family oriented program.
