The original Comber band started as a flute band in 1902 before converting to brass in 1949.
Each week the members come together to practice for concerts, contests, church services and numerous other engagements. The band aim to give back to the community in the area and are involved annually in Christmas celebrations and Remembrance day services. Many of the engagements are in support of local charities.
The members take competition seriously too, annually entering Autumn, Spring and entertainment contests. organised by the Brass Band League (NI) and the North of Ireland Bands Association.
