The band was formed in 1903 under the name Rowntree Cocoa Works Band. The band quickly established itself within the community and began contesting as early as 1905.
Over the years the band’s name changed to reflect corporate developments, becoming Nestle Rowntree Brass Band, until in 2004 the baton was handed to Shepherd Group.
