The members of the Milwaukee Police Band under Retired Lieutenant Karen Dubis, a 40 year veteran of the band and 37 year veteran of the department, continue in their role as “goodwill ambassadors” to the citizens of Milwaukee. They cherish the opportunity to do their part in improving the quality of life in this fine City of Milwaukee.
The Band performs regularly at the Law Enforcement Officer’s Memorial, recruit graduation ceremonies, the Law Enforcement Mass of Blessing at the Basilica of St. Josephat, the Special Olympics Opening Ceremonies and other Civic functions.
The Band is funded solely by the Milwaukee Police Band Association and has earned the status as a 501(C)3 non profit organization.
Donations help to pay for the annual concert at the Pabst Theater that is a free concert open to the public and other items needed for the operations of the band. No city monies are utilized to fund the Band's operations. The civilian and police members who perform with the band volunteer their time and talent.
And the History continues.....
On February 26, 2018 the Milwaukee Police Jazz Ensemble performed at the Mayor's state of the city speech at the Northwestern Mutual Tower, 805 E. Mason Street.
