The Musikverein Kressbronn was founded in 1805 and is therefore one of the oldest music societies in the Lake Constance district. The repertoire includes all kinds of music (march, polka...), jazz, modern music and mood music. With its more than 200 years of existence, the Musikverein Kressbronn is one of the oldest chapels in the Lake Constance district. A short insight into the history of the association shows many reasons for the successes achieved far beyond the local border: the musical direction of the association shows great continuity, as the band was led by only three conductors for two thirds of its history.

First mentioned in 1805, the Musikverein Kressbronn was founded, as was usual at that time, from a music group for the "musical arrangement" of church services. While in the first years the musical life was almost exclusively limited to church performances, from 1840 onwards performances by the Gattnau Music Society at various secular occasions are documented. These are mainly festive events and performances of dance music in pubs.

In 1930 the Musikgesellschaft Hemigkofen-Nonnenbach, formerly Musikgesellschaft Gattnau, was formally founded. The first participants in the Blood Ride in Weingarten in 1930, a new formation in 1932, and the first festive concert on Boxing Day in 1935, which is still the traditional highlight of the association's year, were held until the association's activities came to a standstill due to the war.
