Donations were raised during their  musical extravaganza ‘On with the Show’ 

ATASCADERO — In a landmark moment, the beloved hometown band made its largest-ever donation to a fellow local nonprofit. Atascadero Senior Center was recently presented with a check for $1,530 from the Atascadero Community Band. This contribution was made possible by the support and generosity of their audience at the band’s recent musical extravaganza, “On with the Show!” — a celebration of Broadway’s finest musicals. 

The audience was treated to a chronological journey through some of the most beloved Broadway productions of the past century. The performance included favorites such as Wizard of Oz and “Memory” from Cats, alongside jazzier selections from Guys and Dolls and “All that Jazz” from Chicago. The event, filled with glitz, glam, and a red carpet entrance, left the audience enchanted and eager to support a great cause. 

The Atascadero Community Band, an all-volunteer organization, performs several indoor concerts throughout the year and transitions to their outdoor summer venue at the Atascadero Lake Park Centennial bandstand. This year, the band will be in residence at the lake every Tuesday from June 11 through Aug. 13, with a special Ensembles Concert to culminate the summer season on Aug. 20. 


Supporting local nonprofits like the Atascadero Senior Center is a core mission of the band. The senior center played an active role in the recent concert, engaging with the audience and providing information. The band is immensely proud to make such a significant contribution to an organization that enriches the lives of our senior community members. 

The Atascadero Community Band would like to invite all music lovers and interested musicians to join the musical journey by visiting the band’s website at, their Facebook page at or contacting the band at
