Harrison Barnes said, he played with the band before 1913.

From this musicians it’s known that they played in the Brass Band:

Alto horn Clem Brown, “Pompey”
Tuba Joe Parker
Snare drum Joe Martin
Bass drum “Man Creole”, Henry “Sleepy” Robertson

Willie Parker saw the word “Terminal” at the Basin and Canal Railroad Depot. The band members liked it and so the Terminal Brass Band had his name.

I also used to play some with the Terminal Brass Band, a band that Willie Parker used to play with.i1
