The Lake Wobegon® Brass Band was founded at the Anoka Coffee Shop on a Saturday morning in early 1992 by three men who had attended the 1991 North American Brass Band Association (NABBA) National Contest in Iowa . They returned inspired to turn their dream of a Brass Band “right here in River City ” into reality.

Hometown hero, Garrison Keillor, was contacted regarding the band assuming the name of his “hometown.” He responded, “I’m happy to give my permission. The only condition is that you will let me know when the band is formed... and that at some mutually convenient time, you’ll play at a picnic for me. Good Luck.”

This holiday concert will feature a wide variety of musical styles, from jazz to classical, all with a seasonal flair.

The Lake Wobegon® Brass Band is co-sponsored by Anoka-Ramsey Community College and the Anoka Brass Band Association.
