Do You Want to Play with the Band This Year?
DOWNLOAD THE 2023 PLAYER INFORMATION, complete the forms (and save yourself a copy), then email to the appropriate Section Manager (email addresses are included in the forms or click on a Section Manager name above). Alternatively, you can print the forms, fill them out, and snail mail them to your Section Manager (addresses are included in the forms). Your Section Manager will get back to you about available playing opportunities (if any).
All NEW LCB players (“employees”) must fill out a Form I-9 in order to be paid. Why? It is a federal law! Form I-9 documents that you are authorized to work in the United States. At the first rehearsal you attend, you need to bring either a valid U.S. passport or two forms of ID as specified on Form I-9. In lieu of a passport, most commonly this would be a driver’s license or voter registration card AND a social security card or birth certificate. You can download the form here: https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/document/forms/i-9-paper-version.pdf. Fill out your part of Form I-9 and bring it to rehearsal with your passport or 2 forms of ID. Your Section Manager or another LCB official will examine your documents, complete the remainder of the Form I-9, and file it in the band office for retention.
You can see the concert schedule HERE. Concerts at start at 7:30 pm, except for the July 4 concert (8:00 pm) and the Labor Day concert (7:00 pm).
In 2023, rehearsals will be held in Hagle Hall at Purdue University. Parking for rehearsals is available at the University Street Parking Garage which is conveniently located close to Hagle Hall. Rehearsals are normally from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm and held on the Mondays before Thursday concerts. For concerts that fall on Mondays or the 4th of July, refer to the most recent Player Information forms for dates and times.
We never call off a concert ahead of time. You must come to the concert site where a decision will be made by the concert start time about whether to play or not. If you do not show up and the concert is canceled, you will not be paid. If you do not show up, and the concert is held, you may not be asked back to play again.
Concert dress for concerts is the red Lafayette Citizens Band polo shirt, black pants or skirts, black socks, and black shoes. If you need a shirt and did not order one when you sent in your schedule, email us at email@example.com. The cost of a shirt is $20.
Paychecks are issued twice during the season, around July 15 and September 15. Social security (FICA and Medicare) taxes are withheld but federal and state taxes are generally not.
Rate of pay is $10 per rehearsal for everyone, $10 per concert for non-union members and $40 per concert for paid-up union members (some differences apply to the July 4th sequence).
Players outside of Tippecanoe County receive 25 cents per mile for rehearsals and concerts. Mileage is generally based on a standard mileage chart from Lafayette to your city:
|City||Miles (round trip)||Mileage|
