Cairns Municipal Bands was inaugurated in 1946 as Cairns Citizens 51st Battalion Band and the Railways Band were formally amalgamated.
The original Band Hall was located from the Council Gardens in Aplin St to Martin Munro Park. This was destroyed by a cyclone in 1956.
A new Band hall was established in Charles St, in 1957 and is currently in use today.
In 1991 Tropical Brass was formed and in 1995 the Cairns Concert Band followed.
In 2008 the combined bands were given the name Cairnsbands and a new band was added called Cairns Youth Stage Band. This is now Cairnsbands Big Band.
The music styles performed by these three groups covers many genres and exposes the players and audience to a fabulous range of music. There really is something for everybody to enjoy when we put on a concert.
