Step One - The First Practice

The initial practice of the Citizens Band occurred on Tuesday, April 8th. at the Punxsutawney Middle School Band Room. The band will rehearse regularly on Tuesday evenings beginning on April 22nd.

The Community Band of Punxsutanwey

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.

Brookville, Reynoldsville, Canoe Creek, Mahaffey, Falls Creek, Luthersburg, Cool Spring, Knoxdale, Brockwayville, Ridge, Mountain City, Paradise, DuBois, Perrysville, and Rathmel all had bands that would visit Punxsutawney in the 19th Century.

And, to honor that tradition, our new band will take the name of a band that was formed in 1903 - The Citizens Band of Punxsutawney.
