Galveston Beach Band

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 an 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. See the video clip below. Information on concert dates and location are below and in the Concert Section

Frank Incaprera (pictured to the right) 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 man of monumental commitment and under his nearly 50 year leadership, the summer concerts continue to brings pleasure to so many. In 2014 Frank celebrates his 90th birthday.
