Subject: [GENMASSACHUSETTS] Musical "Bands" in 1800's / 1900's

I sometimes get more information from an on-line search at 5 am than I do at other times of the day. I just searched for "Green Dragon band" and found this web page, which is about the "Boston Brigade Band" of the 1800's. It mentions the "Green Dragon Tavern" in Boston which sounds familiar to me.
I think a KIDDER man was somehow involved with the "Green Dragon Tavern" in very early Boston, but I don't see him mentioned here:
It seems there is a current Green Dragon Band so that is not helping my search for one that existed in early 1900's.

P.S. My grandfather started up a small "family band" in the 1940's, I believe, or around 1950. He, his 2nd wife, and her school-age children were living in the Springfield, MA, area at the time. I don't recall the name of it at this moment, but I can look in my notes. They included "Sy" LEWIS and his BEDELL step-children and their friends.
