Ye Olde Towne Band
August 2018 concert at Shoup Park

In accord with social distancing and mandated shelter in place orders,
rehearsals and concerts have been cancelled until we can proceed
in a healthy manner for all.

In July and August 2021, we were fortunate that Hudson Pacific Properties
gave us permission to hold rehearsals in the parking lot of the Palo Alto Square.
Concerts and indoor rehearsals will need to wait until 2022.
