The Band was originally formed in 1891 and was traditionally linked to coal mining industry of the Gwendraeth Valley. The Band has been well supported throughout, depsite some periods of difficulty with membership due to varying reasons.
During the 1990's the band was struggling with membership and was non-competing whilst just playing at carnivals and at christmas festivities. It was on Boxing Day 1999 that it was decided the band would reform and compete at the forthcoming National Eisteddfod at Llanelli in 2000. From here on the band has developed and gone from strength to strength.
