New MD and a Bright future!

We are delighted that Keith Davies has accepted the position of MD with us.

We are now enjoying playing a wide range of popular brass band music, along with new arrangements by Keith, to suit our current line up – this includes items specific for commemorating the Centenary, and the Armistice in November.

Our diary for Christmas is already filling up, including a concert on 15th December at the URC, Thornbury.

Anyone interested in being part of our bright future, please contact us or come along to a Tuesday evening rehearsal.

Happy Days

 

 

 

 

 

Christmas 2016

3rd December – The band played carols at St Michael’s CoE Primary School for the opening of the Christmas fair.

20th December – The band played for a very well attended and extremely vocal communal carol singing event in aid of the Lardlords Charity at the Anchor in Oldbury

24th December – The band enjoyed Christmas Eve playing for a communal carol singing event in aid of the Froud  Foundation at The Bowl in Almondsbury

Fantastic Band Workshop!

We were extremely fortunate to have Owen Farr lead our practice on 1st November 2016. The band had been preparing for the GBBA event on 20th November and felt that we would benefit from some world class musical interpretation. Owen led us for an intensive workshop with humour and with passion and despite being unfamiliar with the music, the band responded well to his direction and explanation for how to read and interpret phrases and movements. All at the practice commented how enjoyable it had been, despite working hard and how much had been learned.

We hope that Owen might be able to take us again when we are working towards a specific event in the future.

Band Gets New Website

The Band gets a new website! We hope the new band website will be a fantastic source of information for band members and the general public. This website will show the current status of the band and aim to promote the band to the public and to the wider brass band community.

Please feel free to take a look around, view our upcoming events and our band history.

Thank you to all those involved with the production of the new website.

The website is designed to work on all devices including a mobile phone version!
