Nacogdoches is filled with music, all types and all the time, from the front porch “old time” music group that plays downtown every Saturday afternoon, to big names such as Willie Nelson and other stars, and everyone in between – Nacogdoches is a great place to live if music is important to you.

Please visit the main sites of these musical groups for more info about each one.
If your musical group would like to be added, just let us know.

Nacogdoches Community Band (band nerds forever!)

Has it been awhile since you’ve played? Perhaps you wonder if you’ll remember how to read music? Or maybe it’s all still new and fresh in your mind and you just want to play with a group again. Everyone welcome (ages 16+) for this friendly, non-competitive concert band style community band. Many thanks to SFA for supporting the community band. New members always welcome.

Pine Knot Music Co-op (it’s a beautiful thing)

For more than 10 years, the Pinetop Mystics and the Pine Knot have been hosting free and fabulous musical events, featuring local acoustic musicians, as well as stars from other areas around the nation. This unique group is worth a visit.

Lumberjack Marching Band (at Stephen F. Austin State University)

Golden Dragon Band (at Nacogdoches High School)

Nationally famous and invited to exhibition events around the country, including California and Hawaii, the Golden Dragon Band is one of the most exciting groups to be a part of in all of Nacogdoches.
