Rehearsal Policy

For most rehearsals, the band meets on Tuesday evenings from 7 PM to 9 PM at The Margaret L. Vetter School at 3  Grant Avenue in Eatontown, NJ when school is in session.

Rehearsals for the 2023 fall/winter concert season start in early September and last until the final fall/winter concert. The band takes a hiatus during the winter holiday season, and begins spring rehearsals in January for our final concerts in April and May.

Rehearsals are mostly on Tuesday evenings from 7:00 PM (SHARP - actually about 10 minutes prior) until 9:00 PM, but we usually end 15 minutes prior. Early is on time, and on time is late. NOTE: Post COVID, we've tended to start at 6:50 PM and end by 8:30 PM without a break.
