James Benka-Coker B.Eng. (hons.)
We rehearse at Patcham Junior School, Ladies Mile Road, Patcham, BN1 8TA on Friday evenings.
We perform in a wide variety of venues and settings throughout the year. For our diary of upcoming events, click here.
We are members of Brass Band England (BBE), as well as the Southern Counties Amateur Band Association (SCABA). We usually take part in the full band Spring contest, as well as in an Ensemble/Quartets/Solos contest.
The band is always pleased to welcome players of all instruments, regardless of whether or not a vacancy is advertised. In particular, we have vacancies currently for Bb Cornets, Trombone, Bass, and percussionists. If you would like to join us or attend a trial rehearsal, follow this link to the contacts page.
Also, because of our rehearsal structure, we can train absolute beginners who are ‘up for it’, or provide a way back for former players who want to pick up an instrument after a long break. Do contact us & we’ll get you started on your musical journey of a lifetime…
