In brief: Yes, you could
Chronic exposure to loud music or machinery is a very common cause of high frequency hearing loss.
Avoid spending too much time near the band, and wear headphones when using noisy equipment. For a more thorough discussion, see http://www.Richmondent.Com/ear-nose-throat/ears-hearing.Php.

In brief: Yes
The loud bands could produce enough noise to cause a high frequency hearing loss.
Obtain an audiogram. Also you may need to protect your inner ears from progressive hearing loss by using some form of ear plugs. As a waitress, I know you need to hear. But your hearing is more important. Get a job where there is no loud band noises.
