Cortland Old Timers Band Fall 2013



Our 2023 season is underway!       

If you are interested in joining us, please note that we usually rehearse at the Homer Senior High School band room from 7:00pm to 9:00pm on Thursday evenings from March through November (with some time off in the summer). We recommend that you bookmark our schedule page and check it often for rehearsal updates though, as sometimes plans change. NEW MEMBERS ARE WELCOME! If you are interested in joining the band, please contact our Director, Nick Pauldine.

As always, we send out a big THANK YOU to our audiences for your continued enthusiasm and support - we truly appreciate each and every one of you!

Please watch the trailer and bonus features from our 50th anniversary DVD, below. The DVD is $10, and is available at shows (and via PayPal - see below for details).

For show dates and concert programs (song lists from our shows), visit our schedule page, and please like us on Facebook.

If you're interested in having the band perform at an event, please contact our acting business manager, Sharon Detzer.



has had a long and proud history of making music in the Cortland area of Central New York State for over 50 years. Over the years the band has performed under many different names, including The Mascagni Italian Band, The Cortland Civic Band, The St. Anthony’s Band, and more.

The Cortland Old Timers Band is a 501(c)(3) status, equal-opportunity community band, made up of volunteer musicians of all ages and skill levels from Cortland, NY, and the surrounding area. We welcome musicians of all ages to inquire about joining us. In "normal" seasons we rehearse at the Homer Senior High School band room from 7:00pm to 9:00pm most Thursday evenings from March through November. (While COVID was present, we also rehearsed at the Cortlandville Municipal Garage from 6:30pm to 8:00pm on many Thursday evenings for a more "open air" experience.) Please visit our schedule page for current rehearsal and concert dates and locations.

We are so happy to be playing again, and hope to see you soon!
