The UBACE Band & Band Practice

Bucks Alliance for Creative Expression (UBACE) was formed to enrich the lives of people in the communities of

Upper Bucks County and surrounding areas. We provide young people with opportunities that enable awareness of, appreciation for, and active participation in the performing arts in a safe, drug-free environment.

UBACE is open to students in grades 6-12. We welcome musicians, singers, artists, actors, photographers, songwriters and anyone interested in graphic, performing and recording arts.

The UBACE Band is a year-round experience for members who have a strong desire to perform frequently and in smaller venues. Since UBACE Band members practice and play year-round, they develop a much stronger camaraderie and friendship. We also see the artistic growth of these band members skyrocket in a very short time.

The UBACE band plays at small venues throughout Upper Bucks and allows members the opportunity to perform frequently. We have performed at town carnivals and outings, home and organization get-togethers, and more!

Band practice is held every Wednesday night from:

7 PM - 9 PM at the Haycock Township Community Center located at 1014 Old Bethlehem Road, Quakertown, PA 18951. 

Music Director

The UBACE Band is under the direction of Ted Miller. Ted Miller has been a musician for over 35 years and has played guitar and keyboards in several local acts including, Conviction, Thin Ice, Valkir, and 46 Fingers.  His love of music began with drums when he was eight years old and he moved onto guitar, bass, and piano when he was in his early teens.  Ted enjoys sharing his knowledge about music, performance, and leadership with the UBACE band members and finds satisfaction in helping them develop as musicians and as individuals.  During band practice, Ted always seeks to find the right balance between fun and structure, where the kids enjoy what they are doing and have opportunities to be singers, musicians, and leaders while they are getting prepared for their next live performance.

Please come to band practice with an equipment necessary to participate (ex: guitar & amp).
