The Timberlane Community Band, now entering its 21st season, is a free, volunteer band, led by Timberlane Regional School music directors
John Mainella and Tony DiBartolomeo.


We rehearse and perform at the Timberlane Performing Arts Center (PAC), located in the High school/Middle school complex in Plaistow on Thursdays nights from 6:30pm - 8:30pm. We also perform at various indoor and outdoor venues in the greater area. Check our Calendar for upcoming events.


Just Stop By – No Audition Necessary


Many of our members had not picked-up an instrument for years or decades prior to joining the band. We have players who come to rehearsals with fingering charts; others who are music teachers; and everything in-between. Our members range in age from under 18 to over 80.


Stop in and check us out, there is always a friendly face to show
you around!


What we have in common is our love of music, and the shared enjoyment of playing as a group, under the guidance of our seasoned, top-notch directors Tony D., John Mainella, Nick Mainella, and Dan Lorenz.


We are a non-profit organization; many of our performances are free, while some raise money to support music and arts programs in the area. To date, we’ve donated over $12,000 to the Timberlane Regional and area music programs, through student scholarship awards, equipment purchases, and other financial support.


Contact the director of your group to find out which Thursdays your group rehearses on.

As always in our new world, we have COVID guidelines to consider for this fall. Only TCMA members that are fully vaccinated according to CDC guidelines are welcome to attend all rehearsals and concerts and are not required to wear a mask. Those unvaccinated and unwilling to mask, will be asked to delay their return until appropriate medical conditions exist to ensure the health and safety of all the members. To participate, unvaccinated members would need to wear a mask in rehearsals and concerts when not actively performing. Additionally, instrumental performers, where appropriate, would need to secure an instrument covering to inhibit the spread of the virus while performing.  UPDATE: All people entering the PAC buildings will wear masks per the Timberlane School Board. We need to keep them on until we are seated and ready to play. If you get up to go to the restroom or take a break, we must put them back on again. If you go outside, no mask is required.
