Many bands, old and new, have gone through various name changes over the years. Indeed, keeping track of what the different incarnations of bands are can often be difficult. The Brass Bands Genealogy page of the IBEW attempts to collect together such details for existing bands. Similar information, together with other details, is recorded, where known, in the Extinct Bands section of the website for bands that no longer exist. Any details of bands' name changes, mergers and de-mergers, deaths and resurrections - for current bands and those no longer with us - are very welcome here. Appropriate entries are made in this area providing details of the bands' previous names and, occasionally, short notes on their history. I tend to leave the fuller details to the bands themselves on their websites. All relevant material posted will find its way to the appropriate reference areas of the IBEW.
