The Western Band of Loyola College had its origin in the year 1990 in the form of a Melodica Band started by Miss. Mercy Miral, the teacher-in-charge.  Taking part in all school functions, it was made exclusively a girls’ band.

In 2006 the College Brass Band was established by Rev. Fr. Chandanalal Fernando working as the Priest-in-charge, and organized a Band Competition together with the Teachers’ Guild in our school.  Sixteen  schools participated at the competition from different parts of the country.  The band was trained by Mr. Nimal Fernando. Rev.Fr. Trevor Martin the Rector provided all the assistance needed for the progress of the band.  Crishnali Fernando, Heshani Thakshila and Maleesha Bandara served as band leaders.
