The Classic City Band of Athens, Georgia is the oldest continuously functioning community band in Georgia. The band was founded in 1976 for the purposes of preserving the rich cultural heritage of the American concert band. On September 7, 2006, Athens Mayor Heidi Davison and the Athens Clarke-County Commission issued a proclamation declaring The Classic City Band “the official municipal band of Athens, Georgia.”
Historical memorabilia of the Classic City Band is housed in a permanent collection at the Heritage Room of the Athens-Clarke County Library, 2025 Baxter Street, Athens, GA 30606. We thank Don Paalsgard for collecting much of the information on these pages.
