Public Domain Band Music

imageI recently discovered the BandMusic PDF Library. It contains musical gems from the time of Gilmore, Sousa, Pryor, Liberati, Goldman, Reeves and other professional bands that were wildly popular in their day.

In addition to touring the country, performing in cities and towns across America, the bands attained stardom status at fairs, centennials and exhibitions. They were some of the first to have their music widely distributed on recordings—in on the ground floor of the recording industry.

Current number of pieces in library: 669 (728 entries)
Number of “Print & Play” pieces: 113 (144 entries)

Enjoy, especially those new bands, who have a very small library!
