Since 1983 the HWCB has been making music in the Twin Cities metro area. During those years, the band has performed for thousands of people in various outdoor venues including the Lake Harriet Bandshell in Minneapolis, Centennial Lakes in Edina, the Burwell House in Minnetonka, Friendship Village in Bloomington, Downtown Park in Hopkins, and locations in St. Paul, Maple Grove, Eden Prairie, and Plymouth.
