    Default Civil war modern day bands

    Hope this fits in this category, but if not feel free to move it to the correct spot. But I was looking for some good CW music to listen too. I have 2nd Car. String band albums, but would like to find some federal music as well.. Brass band and big marches is what I am looking for. Any suggestions?

    The Camp Chase Fifes and Drums are excellent if you're looking for marches.

    I personally recommend the 46th Pennsylvania Regimental Band. They're an excellent brass band from my region. I believe you could order a CD from the contact info at the bottom of the page.

    Try the Federal City Brass Band/26th North Carolina Regimental Band. They really know how to work the brass.

    Well, since you made it a point to become a volunteer moderator, they have done arrangements of marches in past performances as a form of showing soldier adaptation in camp music. No brass, but the original poster did ask about marches.
