The bandstand commemorates two local bandsmen who died in World War One and four who were killed in World War Two. 

The bandstand was originally erected in memory of the bandsmen who fell in World War One. The bandstand was restored and rededicated on the 10th November 1985. 

The Terang Brass Band proposes to collect at all the local football matches this season towards a fund for the erection of a memorial Band rotunda in High-street. At last Saturday's match the collection amounted to £3 10/6. The band secretary, Mr. H. L. Miles, also acknowledges a donation of 5/ from Mr. W. Moore towards the same object and will be glad to acknowledge further subscriptions.
