Free Galveston Beach Band Weekly Concert @ Ashton Villa
Aug 20 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

The Galveston Beach Band, founded by Frank Incaprera father, has been providing concerts for over 90 years. Frank, the band leader, has been attending concerts since he was four months old! And some members of the band have been part of the band for 40+ years.

FREE concert times are every Tuesday evenings, 7.30-9.30pm, beginning June 4th. Concert location is at Sealy Pavilion off Broadway and in front of the Rosenberg Library in downtown Galveston.

The Galveston Beach Band concerts play a wide variety of music drawing from Jazz, shows and music of its time. In the video example below, Robert Gray conducts a medley of tunes from the show Chicago.

Starting in the 1920’s, the Galveston Beach Band free concerts were an important summer Island attraction, often boasting audiences of 2,000 and featured on the newspaper front page. By the 1960s the Band had declined and was revitalized, thanks to its core of loyal musicians and then new leader, Frank Incaprera.

Fast forward to today and the free concerts continue, as much loved as ever. Now a proudly family venue, concerts are a diverse mix of much-loved show tunes, big band numbers, and jazz.

Housed in Sealy Pavilion, concerts are a mixture of family, fun and summer relaxation. Frank Incaprera is the driving force behind the Galveston Beach Band.

Frank Incaprera is the driving force behind the Galveston Beach Band. From annual quest for funding to music selection, conducting, and playing solos, Frank is front and center stage. He is a man of monumental commitment and under his nearly 50-year leadership, the summer concerts continue to bring pleasure to so many. In 2014 Frank celebrates his 90th birthday.

Sponsored by Galveston Island, the Beach Band continues a tradition of family music by performing concerts each summer that provides free, good, clean, family-fun from June to August.
