'The Band’s archives include well documented history taking us back to 1842 when, funded by public subscription, the “Accrington Old Band” was formed. There were a total of 24 instruments, including such long forgotten items as Ophicleides and Serpents ... The military tradition lives on in a small way, with one or two members (and regular guest players) having been musicians in the armed forces. Several players - Euphonium, Clarinet, Saxophone, Flute and Cornet/Trumpet - perform as soloists, some whenever possible! All the members play in at least one other wind band and a few also play in local brass or silver bands. This adds to the wealth of practical experience and variety of musical styles to draw upon.‘
