ISB History

In 1988 the idea of a community band was born through the vision of the Irving Parks and Recreation Department.  The band continued to grow and under the direction of Robert J. Brule registered as a 501(c)3 organization in 1990.  Through the years, distinguished guests such as David Holsinger, Francis McBeth, Dr. Alfred Green, and Captain Lewis J. Buckley have shared their talents with the band and the community of Irving.  Jay L. Bach now leads the band and continues to inspire ISB members and community patrons with music for all seasons! 


ISB Personnel

Our band is comprised of people with diverse musical backgrounds.  Many of our members are full time band directors and musicians.  However, the majority of our members work in professions not related to music but have a desire to continue playing challenging music.  Our members are adults who have either continued to play their instrument since college or high school or have become "reacquainted" with their instrument over the past few years.  No matter where we work during the day, the same desire to create great music brings us together on Thursday evenings.
