The Austin Brass Band is a community band comprised of amateur and professional brass and percussion musicians from the Austin/Central Texas area. The Austin Brass Band is a 501(c)3 organization.
Inspired by the 1996 British movie Brassed Off, the band was originally formed by members of the Austin Civic Wind Ensemble in 2005. The brass band dates back to the early nineteenth century and England’s Industrial Revolution as an outgrowth of the medieval waits (public musicians) with a vibrant tradition of competition based around communities and local industry. Although brass bands were an important part of life in nineteenth-century America, they were superseded by larger concert and marching bands. However, many fine historic brass bands are still actively performing today. Starting in the late twentieth century, North America has had a brass band resurgence.
