The Gold Coast Band is a municipal community band proudly supported by the City of Boynton Beach, Florida. The band was founded in 1976 by the late James E. Buffan, PhD. Dr. Buffan and his wife, Lee, came to Boynton Beach from Niagara Falls, N.Y., where he was director of music for the city`s public schools. He also served as a music teacher on the faculty of Niagara University.
Today, comprised of more than 60 volunteer musicians of all ages, they perform Broadway tunes, marches, classical, semi-classical and popular music programs under the direction of Barbara Rubenstein.
The concert season runs from September through May of each year.
Our vocalist, International Jazz Performer Donna Singer, PhD, is thrilled to be a part of the band and enjoys the community band atmosphere. The band, composed of both professional and non-professional musicians and students, focuses on making each concert an enjoyable and entertaining experience for everyone.
The Gold Coast Band is a proud member of The Association of Concert Bands.
