Prior to 1980 known as the Junior band it rose out of the four former Boys Bands that would feed players to the senior band as required.
Many players have moved on from these ranks to achieve Champion of Champions status at National contest. Others have been recognised with selection to our National Youth Band, and National Band.
In 1980 it changed its name to Auxiliary as many Adult players were joining (coming back from retirement). At this point our Auxiliary Band started attending provincial contests as an assisted grade band. After success in this grade the decision was made to enter at D grade.
Now boasting 42 registered players this band has excelled in 2002 winning the National D grade section. In 2004 they were asked by the BBANZ to compete at C grade level.
