The Community Band of Punxsutawney

The borough of Punxsutawney has a long history with community bands. Some Punxsutawney residents joined the band of the Wildcat Regiment to fight in the Civil War. And, there have been a number of bands that were formed, flourished and disbanded since.

A partial list of Punxsutawney Bands, that were in existence before 1900 include the Punxsutawney Band, the Punxsutawney Silver Cornet Band, Lindsey Brass Band, Punxsutawney Martial Band, Keystone Band, Boy's Band, Marchand Band, Big Run Band, and the Walston Band.

And, to honor that tradition, our band takes the name of the band that formed in 1903 - The Citizens Band of Punxsutawney.
