The historic Singer Band of Mechanicsburg, PA is an all-volunteer concert band, based near Harrisburg in Central Pennsylvania. The band was originally known as the Keystone Band but changed its name to the Seventh Pennsylvania Voluntary Infantry Band when its members joined the service during the Civil War.
After the war, the band reorganized under the direction of David Singer and became the Singer Cornet Band. This is the early history of one of the oldest town bands in Central Pennsylvania. For more information about our past, please visit our History Pages.
