The VFW Band of Colorado band is the oldest organized ensemble of its kind in the state, founded in 1888 as Geo. W. Cook’s Drum Corp. In 1931, as the number of Civil War veterans dwindled, the Veterans of Foreign Wars sought our services and the name was changed to Cooks V.F.W. Band and Drum Corps. In 1948, when the Department of Colorado designated us as their official band, our name became The V.F.W. Band of Colorado. For more information visit littletonmusic.org/vfwband.
