Fridley City Band was established in 1960 when a bunch of Fridley parents of musical children decided to have some fun with music as well. What started as a whim has expanded and grown past the city limits. They accept anyone who plays any interest because they are mostly in making good music and camaraderie. They have another band called the Old Tim Band that plays older music such as waltzes and poolkas. It's a good time to be had by all.
