DRCB has a long and distinguished history
The Diablo Regional Concert Band began in 1910 as the Martinez Liberty Band. Several conductors led both a Martinez concert band and a marching band. Mr. Bartlettani revived the Municipal Band in 1942 and remained conductor until 1955. Mr. FrankCavoto conducted the band for sixteen years beginning in the 1992.
Annually, the band performs for the Martinez Veterans Day celebration, the Benicia Library concert series, the Benicia Yacht Club, the Martinez 4th of July Parade, the Golden Gate Park Band Festival, the Benicia Memorial Day ceremonies at the cemetery, and the Benicia Holy Ghost Parade. It has also performed in the Black Diamond Mines Summer Music Festival, and the Fall Festival in American Canyon.
The Diablo Regional Concert band is a self-supporting, all-volunteer organization. If you are interested in joining or would like more information, please contact Cora Martens at telephone (925) 451-6222 or
