The American Wind Band (AWB) celebrated its 28th consecutive year in 2016-17. Founded in 1989 as the Westchester Community Band by Vincent Furman, Gregory Hamot and John Chadwick, the organization moved to the Oakbrook Terrace Park District in 1999 and was renamed the American Wind Band.
After more than a decade in Oakbrook Terrace, the band found it necessary to move once again. The band has found a home in Downers Grove. Some of the original members still perform with the band. Over the
