History

Since its inception in 1888 the Warragul Municipal band has gone from strength to strength, achieving wide acclaim for its outstanding playing. The first paid performance of the band was at the 1889 Warragul Show. The band has had a number of name changes over the years but has been in continuous existence since 1888. There were a number of periods during which the band struggled to maintain its presence, particularly during the two world wars when manpower was at a premium and also during the great depression of 1930. Without doubt the most successful era has been from the mid 1970s until the present day.
