About The Band

A Lifetime of Music

Founded in 1989, the Downriver Community Band (DCB) is a volunteer wind ensemble of adult musicians with a mission to promote music within the organization and the community. DCB is comprised of players of various skill levels from all walks of life. We pride ourselves on having no auditions required and no chair positions. DCB is for everyone; DCB is for fun! DCB performs locally for civic, charity, and fundraising events and has performed in Hawaii, New York, Washington DC, and Indiana. Our repertoire consists of marches, big band, classical, jazz, show tunes, contemporary, and original compositions. Our conductor, Patrick Jensen, is an active musician in the Detroit area. He teaches music at both Wayne State University and Henry Ford College and has been associated with the Detroit Symphony Civic Orchestra, The Dearborn Symphony, Henry Ford College Big Band, and the Frank Zappa tribute band. Sponsorship for the group comes solely from community supporters.
