The Waunakee Project Brave Band was formed in 2021 after a group of people came together to bring light to their community during a traumatic season. The Waunakee community has lost several people to suicide, mental health and drug related incidents over the years. They believe music is a key ingredient in coping with and healing from trauma and combined with treatment and healthy practices can help people live a joyful, productive life!
