    Abstract:
    Joseph Tyler, an accomplished clarinetist, had thirteen children with his two wives, and formed two Family Bands which toured the British Isles and France over a period of nearly half a century. In addition to performing in their own concerts, they took part in pantomimes and other music hall revues, were engaged as the 'town band' in Aberystwyth in 1873, 1874, and 1885; had six seasons at Harrogate, in 1845, 1846, 1872, 1877, 1880, and 1885; and also had the privilege of being the first known instance in the UK of a band's performance being transmitted remotely to an audience, during a concert at the Bradford Technical School's Fine Art and Industrial Exhibition, in July 1882.
