Loxley Band

So, if you can get a sound out of a cornet, a flugel horn, tenor horn, baritone, euphonium, trombone or tuba, there’s a band around Sheffield that would love to hear from you.

It’s not necessarily about playing a brass instrument either; most bands have good collections of percussion equipment so if you’re starting out as a drummer or have some experience and are looking for a group to play with, why not consider a local brass band?

Brass bands have a part central to the musical culture of many regions as well, dating back to the days when every colliery had a band. Things have moved on now; we’re not all about flat caps and whippets any more! We are about families, about development of young people, about providing a focal point for the communities in which we’re based, and most importantly, about getting together in a safe, enjoyable atmosphere and making music.

Woodhouse Prize Band

If you’re an event organiser, having a brass band playing at your event, whether it’s a formal concert in a hall, a school or village fete, or even a wedding can make a big difference to the event. Not only is it a group of local people providing live music, but you might be surprised at the range of music played by many bands. Bands generally have extensive music catalogs covering everything from Beethoven to Beyonce, and sheffieldbrass can help bands share music as well.
