Daniel P. Keener and Alvin M. Hildebrand organized the Red Lion Concert Band July 4, 1932. A small German band, organized some four or five years prior to 1932, was the forerunner of this band. Alvin Hildebrand was the band's first director.
The Felton Band was established in 1892 and incorporated on February 20, 1893. Mr. William G. Reichard was this band's first director. The Red Lion Concert Band and the Felton Band merged to become the Red Lion Felton Band in April 1972.
Together, the Red Lion Felton Bands have been entertaining Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey and Delaware residents for over 126 years. The band is currently under the direction of William Ritz and the assistant director, Alisha Miller.
The business manager for the Red Lion Felton Band is Mr. Ronald Anstine.
