Brass Band

The Band Club has a vibrant history which dates back to the formation of the St Marys' District Band in 1882, and the donation of a property and hall in 1923 by Joe Armstein, a local businessman.

 

The real genesis of the club extends to 1952, when Brian King and Ern Keller met together to discuss reforming the band and making a club. The late Ern Keller is well known to people around the St Marys district, and a number of brass band competitions have been held in his honour, including the annual Ern Keller Memorial Competition. Brian King is also a notable figure in St Marys history. He was the longest serving mayor of Penrith. No doubt with Ern Keller's love of band music and Brian King's love of a beer the two would have made an admirable start to a club.

 

The members of this reformed band reclaimed their hall and set out to repair the run-down state it had been reduced to. With the help of local business people who donated goods and services to get the hall into a decent state, the St Marys District Band Club was revived and granted a license in 1956.
