The 1st Nebraska Volunteers Brass Band is a re-created Civil War band specializing in authentic musical arrangements from the Civil War era. We emulate the original 1st Nebraska Volunteer Infantry Regiment Band of 1861-1862. We wear the Union Army’s fatigue uniform of sack coat and belt, dark blue trousers, and kepi.
We perform for local community festivals, civic and patriotic events, and Civil War and history related events. Many of our programs are 60 minutes in length and can be somewhat tailored to the individual event.
