Description

The Dominican Band (Fanfare de l’Association Saint-Dominique) began in 1894. Under the direction of Louis N. Gendreau, they had their first public engagement at Lewiston’s centennial celebration in 1895, and became popular doing “promenade concerts” at Lewiston City Hall. For new members, the band relied on the expert training of boys in the Ste. Cecelia Band. In the late 30’s, the Montagnard Club assumed direction of the band, renaming it La Fanfare Montagnard.
