Organized by the late Peter A. Broomall in 1930, the Broomall String Band is one of the oldest string bands in existence today. The band was originally organized and located in South Philadelphia. Then in the early 1970's the club moved across the Delaware River to National Park, New Jersey, where they can be found today.Mummers

New Year's Day 2012 will mark the bands 82nd anniversary. Peter's descendants still participate in some capacity with the band today. His two sons James and Edward, his grandson Peter Sr., great-grandson Peter Jr. (PJ ) and great-great-grandsons Mason and Kaden ; hence the reason why Broomall is proud of their close family tradition.
