Default Service Pipe Bands in USA

I think we are all familiar with the formation on the FDNY and NYPD and various Emerald Society fire/police bands in the early 1960s. Are there any records, recollections, or surviving members of fire/police bands in the US before that time? San Francisco PD did have a band in the late '50s early 60's but that seems to be the earliest reference of a US "service band" I can find. What was happening in the East or PNW?
