History:

The band was established in 1982 under the name "Breakfast Kiwanis Concert  Band".  Paul Duker was the first conductor. The band performed before the  Kiwanis travelogue series as well as several times in the community. 
 
After two years under the auspices of the Breakfast Kiwanis Club, the band established itself as a separate entity and the name was changed to the Quincy Community Concert Band. Dale Kimpton became the  conductor of the band in 1984 and established the performance  schedule that is still followed today.  Bill DeMont succeeded Kimpton in 1996, and Dr. Trent Hollinger took the baton in 2010.

 In 2006 the name was changed to The Quincy Concert Band.   In 2018, the name of the corporation was changed to Quincy Concert Band, Inc.
