The Derby City Brass Band was formed in January of 2002. The founding members were all brass band veterans, having played in other brass bands, including the well-known Advocate Brass Band in Danville, Ky., and the Commonwealth Brass Band of southern Indiana.
Unlike the Advocate Brass Band, The Derby City Brass Band is established as a traditional British-style brass band. Information on the history and make-up of the British-style brass band can be found at the NABBA (North American Brass Band Association) website www.nabba.org.
