The Palisade Band has enjoyed a long, rich history of music education and great performances! Since being established in 1928 by Cleon Dalby, the Band has served tens of thousands of young musicians. The Band continues to build upon the solid traditions established so many years ago. These traditions are what help to create the strong family environment within our Band where we take care of each other in so many ways.  


Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.
