The band has a hundred-year history having been formed in 1892 thanks to the efforts of the notable Gaspare Marchiafava. For many years the band conducted its musical activities wherever it was required thanks to the commitment of the musicians and teachers.

In 1973, for the need of many Patricani emigrants, a sister band was formed with The Aliquippa Band in Pennsylvania (USA), with which it maintains a solid and lasting friendship.

In 2015, the Band toured the US and Canada where it performed for the Italian-American community of Aliquippa, Pennsylvania, on the occasion of the local festival of San Rocco, and in Toronto in Canada.
