The revival of the Leeton Town Band, after 42 years in recession, was conceived after the 2006 Leeton Eisteddfod. Ruth Tait observed how few players were entered in the various instrumental sections and identified a need for instruments other than piano to be showcased.

Ruth contacted local private music teachers, high school music teachers and community members, with an overwhelmingly positive response. The first Band 'gathering' was held on a Wednesday evening in November 2006, playing scores borrowed from Chrissy Alexander.

The bands first public performance was ANZAC Day 2007, to a welcoming audience, and from that time on band has enjoyed a steady schedule stream of public performances, and a constantly increasing musical repertoire.

The band meets Wednesdays 7:30 at the Kings Christian Church hall in Dooley Lane.
