The award-winning ensemble were founded in 1909 by local fishermen under the name of Flookburgh Village Hall Brass Band before becoming Flookburgh Silver Band in 1937. There are strong family ties within the band. One of the bandsmen is a direct descendant of a founder member and there are family groups amongst the current musicians.

In 2009 Flookburgh Band were Northern champions and won through to the finals of the National Brass Band Championship of Great Britain. Flookburgh Youth Band were formed in September 2009 and have recently achieved second place in the Youth Band section at the South Cumbria Music Festival.

Flookburgh Band is totally self-supporting and throughout its history has never had any sponsorship and is reliant upon income from concerts and fund-raising events.
