Fralinger String Band

The Fralinger String Band was founded on December 14, 1914, by the late Dr. John J. Fralinger, a famous Philadelphia M.D., Pharmacist, and team Physician for the Philadelphia Athletics professional baseball team. Dr. Fralinger's philanthropy touched many people, including young local musicians interested in starting a competitive, performing band.

The band first paraded in the annual Philadelphia Mummers Parade on New Year's Day 1915. Since its modest beginnings, the band has won a total of 16 first prizes, most notably eight consecutive first prize finishes from 2003-2010, a record of achievement that is unequaled. Fralinger is noted throughout the world for its creative musical arrangements and excellent performances.

The band keeps true to the Philadelphia String Band traditions, playing only reed, string and percussion instruments to create their most unique and entertaining jazz standards style.
