The Band is an auditioned group of players who rehearse together and provide music on a rotating basis for all BIBC’s Sunday services. Music is an important part of the Sunday worship experience, and the band is responsible for helping bring this experience to life. The Band is mostly made up of guitars, keyboards, bass, and drums, but is open to experienced musicians of all styles and instruments, including rock, classical and jazz instrumentalists.

Got questions about the Band?
Who gets involved with the BIBC Band?
The people who are involved with the Band are interested in attending BIBC on a regular basis. Some are professional musicians, while others may work in other fields. They feel gifted and want to use their talents to serve our church, and they have a servant’s heart, ready and willing to serve where needed. Band members serve primarily at the weekend services.
Do I have to be a member of BIBC to join?
You do not have to be a member in order to join. However, by joining the Worship Arts Team, it is our hope that you will decide to make the commitment to go through NEXT STEPS Class and this season, and officially join the BIBC family.
Will I be asked to play every week?
No. We try to be very conscious of your schedule. We will create a schedule at the beginning of the season so that you are aware of your commitments right from the start.
You are required to attend weekly rehearsals only if you are playing that Sunday. Likewise, you are expected to be a regular attender at the Sunday service even if you are not playing.
When are rehearsals and how long do they last?
Rehearsals are on Thursdays @ 7pm. You will only need to attend rehearsal on the weeks that you are playing. Rehearsals last approximately 2 hours depending on what needs to be accomplished. We usually put together 4-6 songs each week, so it takes some time to get everything just right. You should know the music completely when you arrive for rehearsal.
What do I need to do to audition?
