A Rich History
Founded in 1984 by Dr. Paul Droste (pictured above), the Brass Band of Columbus (BBC) has a Championship reputation. The BBC competed in the top NABBA division, the Championship Section, and has been awarded First Place ten times – most recently in April 2006. No other North American brass band approaches this record of excellence.
