WELCOME TO THE WARBLETON BRASS BAND HOME PAGE
Our next public
Rushlake Green Big Lunch
We couldn't have wished for better weather for the 6th annual Rushlake Green Big Lunch. Although we played some traditional summer favourites such as Strawberry Fair and the Floral Dance we started with the upbeat Brassed up Funk and finished with Glen Millers American Patrol. We also played The Happy Bandleader but many noticed our very own happy bandleader Sian was missing from the front of the band. She was there, instead of where's Wally it was where's Sian? You would have had to ventured round the back of the band to find her. She traded her little baton for an Eb Bass, and apparently she did very well back there. As a word of caution the back of the band is not for the faint hearted!!!
Our very own Angel in Blue received a highly commended award for her outstanding performance entertaining her fellow scarecrows outside the Horse and Groom Public House.
Every Friday is an open rehearsal when anyone is more than welcome to come along to listen or indeed think about joining.
Did you use to play many years ago? Always fancied having a go on a brass instrument? Want a hobby for your children,
or Just decided to take up a challenge?
Then why not join a friendly community band.
Want a hobby for your children? Just decided to take up a challenge? We have instruments, tuition, uniforms and music, all you need is the enthusiasm to give it a go, what have you got to lose? It's all free of charge and our training band is taught by our MD who is a professional music teacher. Come along at 7pm to chat with the MD or speak to a committee member, perhaps arrange to try an instrument. 7.15pm is the training band, come and listen to how we encourage players of all ages and standards to improve and play as an ensemble. The main band is at 7.45pm, we then let the training band members sit in for the first 15 minutes to get a feel for the big band and to play alongside more experienced players. 8pm we knuckle down with some hard work, a few laughs, maybe even a few groans but most of all we have nearly two hours of music making with friends. What could be better?
