Celebrating its 102nd season, the Buffalo Silver Band is a unique presence in the Buffalo-Niagara music scene. As the only British-style brass band in upstate New York, the Silver Band continues a band performance tradition that was established before our Civil War and rose to prominence at the end of the 19th Century only to fade with the rise of radio and other mass media technologies of the 20th Century. The brass band is a proud and important part of our musical heritage.
The Buffalo Silver Band is an entirely volunteer music organization providing an active concert program to the Western New York and Southern Ontario Community. We rely almost entirely on support and donations to fund expenses such as purchasing music, acquiring instruments, maintaining insurance and other operating expenses. If you would like to donate to the Buffalo Silver Band, please access the “Donate” button, below. The Buffalo Silver Band is a registered 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization and all donations are deductible to the extent permitted by law.
