The Portland Metro Concert Band is an adult band comprised of musicians who enjoy playing music. Members range from college students to retired professionals. The PMCB was formed in 1992 by well known band directors, Fev Pratt and Jay Burchak. From 2009 thru the 2014 season, the directors were Jay Burchak and Jack Mahoney. The current directors are Jay Burchak and Dr. Roger Nickerson.

The PMCB performs at community events, schools, and retirement centers. A major event for the band each year is participation in the Mid-Willamette Band Festival in Silverton, Oregon.

The band also presents two formal concerts each year, usually scheduled in December or January and in May. These free concerts are held at the Horner Performing Arts Center at David Douglas High School, on SE 130th between Stark and Division Streets.

Current members represent diverse backgrounds, from music educator to accountant, to computer analyst, to physician. Several have resumed playing after as much as a 25 year break. Many have played together, on and off, for many years in both amateur and professional settings.
