We take lots of trips and perform throughout the state. Performances will include Elitch Gardens, the Carnation Festival Parade in Wheatridge, the Western Welcome Parade in Littleton, the Arkansas Valley Fair Parade in Rocky Ford and the State Fair Parade in Pueblo. The Sun City Band provides transportation to all out of town activities. But that’s not all! Band pool and pizza parties are some of the other special Sun City Band activities.

Do you have to try out?

To be in the band itself or flags, no! However, there will be try-outs for those interested in Drum Major. If you are interested in trying out for Drum Major and have been a member of Sun City for at least one year, please contact Mr. Emery.


Our staff consists of instrumental specialists including college music majors and local professional music educators. The Sun City Band is directed for the 25th year by Mr. Mark Emery. Mr. Emery was the director of the six-time Colorado State Marching Band Champion, Pueblo County High School and past director of the Centennial High School Band.
