Kearney Community Band is very American; performers, first practice starts May 31

KEARNEY — Dan Frizane encourages band players to dig out their instruments and join the band. “I’m good at begging people to come and play with us,” said the leader of the Kearney Community Band. “We’re entirely volunteer-based. We’re at the mercy of musicians who come and volunteer their time. Nobody is paid — including myself. I encourage people to dig their instrument out and play with us. I’ve learned that people who say, ‘Oh, I haven’t touched my horn in years,’ when they get it out and play, they’re pleasantly surprised. A lot of it comes back to them.”
