This was one of many bands in the St. Jon’s Day parade in Lewiston. The Dewitt Hotel near City Hall was considered a local landmark.

The Dominican Band regrouped in 1939 under the auspices of The Montagnard Club, a well-known Lewiston snowshoe club, and was renamed La Fanfare Montagnard. The band played in parades and at social functions around the state.
