BB Band History : In the 2nd February 1885 William Smith wrote to a local newspaper telling them they had organised a band which was making remarkable progress, this was a flute band consisting of 16 performers. ( First BB band was a Flute band)
The idea of BB bands caught on very quickly and the BB Annual Report for 1885/86 shows there were five flute bands in existence and only two years later the Annual Report for 1887/88 reported 35 bands - 25 flute, 2 bugle, 4 brass and 4 pipe bands. all this from only 220 companies then on the roll.
