Blue Hungarian Band

From Historical Hastings

The Blue Hungarian band were a popular draw in Britain over almost five decades between 1880 and the 1930s. A collection of emigrés from the Austro-Hungarian empire, they were led for the most part by Wilhelm Morgann, and were alternately known as the White Hungarian Band or Morgann's Viennese band. The band is known to have performed on St. Leonards Pier, Hastings Pier and Alexandra Park Bandstand between 1900 and 1914, possible longer.
