The Federal City Brass Band, founded in 2002 by Jari Villanueva recreates the sound and appearance of a regular U.S. Army regimental brass band of the 1860s. With the exception of some reproduction rope-tension drums, all of the instruments used by the band are originals dating to the mid 19th century, and come from the collections of band members and from the Mark A. Elrod Collection. The sources of the music the band plays include original band journals and sheet music of the Civil War era.
