The band has been through quite a lot of change recently, partly due to young players leaving for university and partly because some of our more established members have moved on due to relocation or work commitments.
As a result, we've decided that we won't be taking part in brass band contests for the time-being. We're currently re-building the band and dedicating our time and effort to making it a really good development band, and teaching people of all ages that music can be fun.
However, we are increasing our outside commitments and have a few things in the diary. As we grow, we’ll play out in public more and take on garden fêtes, private events, etc.
When we do play out and about, we provide our own music and all our stands. Being a brass band, we don't need a sound system (as you'll appreciate, once you've heard us) and we only rely on our hosts for sufficient seating and lighting to play.
We have a range of players at the moment; some young, some adult and ranging from beginners to those who are more experienced.
We meet and play different pieces from our extensive library. It ranges from traditional to more up-to-date music and includes film themes and modern pop songs. In fact, if it has been written for brass and we have it in our libray, we'll give it a go. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't - but we always have fun playing.

We can't wait to hear from you.
