The Village of Oughtibridge has supported some sort of music making group for well over 100 years. The Band in its current state was formed in 1890. Throughout its history the Band has supported local events such as Church Parades, Galas, Carol Concerts etc as well as taking the village name far and wide with their tours and engagements.
The Band has also been a competing band engaged in local and national brass bands contests. From 1960 to 79 the Band won 23 trophies. In more recent times the Band played in London (including at the Albert Hall) in the National Championships three times between 1980 and 1990, and in the 3rd Section National Finals in Torquay in 2002. Successes continued in 2011 in entertainment contests.
