A WIND BAND FOR KEEN PERFORMERS
Our band was formed in September 2013, as a teaching band and comprised players ranging from complete beginners with no musical education, to players returning to their instrument after several years break.
Since then we have worked hard to improve our musical ability and we are now playing at approximately Grade 5 level.
Our continued development is due to dedicated practising and plenty of performance opportunities. Last year we played at 11 events, in and around Bristol. Currently our band comprises of Flutes, Clarinets, Alto/ Tenor and Baritone Saxes, French Horn, Mellophone, Euphonium, Trombones, Trumpets, Bass Guitar and Drums, which means we have a well balanced sound.
What we do
We meet every Wednesday evening in the YouFoundation, Page Road, Staple Hill, Bristol, BS16 4NE at 7.30, under the baton of Musical Director, ANDY LOVERIDGE.
We play a variety of music that suits our abilities and taste, such as:- 'Les Miserables', 'Sabre Dance', 'Black Magic Woman', 'All About That Bass', 'Peter Gunn' and many more:- see 'Our Music' for our full repertoire.
We are run by a committee of members, who actively seek out local events and venues at which the band can play and hence share our music with the wider community. If you'd like to book us for an event, please go to our 'enquiries' page.
