We are LIVE!

So this post is a filler really, just so that something is up on site and you guys don’t end up looking at a blank page thinking “are these guys for real?”

We are all working hard behind the scenes, our Facebook page is growing week by week, we are now on Twitter (yes, these are shameless plugs to get you to FOLLOW US and SHARE!).  

This website is under development though, so you will just have to bear with us and suggest some content (please)! 😛

Our annual concert is happening on the 5th October, 7pm at St Lukes Church, Grimethorpe. All our players are working hard to make sure we sound fantastic on the night and we have some fantastic solos in our programme… Tickets are £4 – and every penny goes into the band funds so we can keep playing and teaching brass to anyone who wants to learn.
