Concert at Holy Cross Church

As part of the Daventry Festival, Daventry Brass are giving a concert at the Holy Cross Church at 7:30pm on Friday 10th July. The programme contains something for everybody and features Ryan James as a soloist. Ryan, a french horn player, is from Daventry and is currently studying for a music degree in London. There is not a huge amount of music for french Horn and brass band in the repertoire so an arrangement of a Franz Strauss piece ('Introduction, Theme and Variations') has been arranged especially for the concert.

Charity Concert

The band are soon to be performing a concert with all proceeds going to the Daventry District Council Chairman's chosen charity - the Alzheimer's Society

Recent Events!

Recently the website has been unavailable due to possible hacking of the hall/band booking pages (is anything safe nowadays!). Coinciding with this it appears that the api (computer program) that links google calendar to the webpage has now been withdrawn and is only available as a 'paid for' item. This has meant that future event details are no longer showing. Whilst we find a resolution for this, the band's christmas schedule is:

Sun 14 Dec: Long Buckby URC Carol service 6pm

Tue 16 Dec: Badby Park (Care Home) - carols 7pm

Wed,Thu, Fri 17-19 Dec: Tescos Daventry carols 6:30-8pm

Sat 20 Dec - Bowen Square, Council of Churches 11am

Sun 21st Dec - Drayton Green carols - 4pm-5pm

First Contest in the First Section

The Band are now just over two weeks away from their first appearance in the First Section. We were expecting an 'increase in difficulty' of the music selected as the test-piece, but as in our first year in the Second section (2012) the particular choice of piece (London Overture) is much harder to play that in previous years. Having said that, the situation is the same for all bands and we are looking forward to the performance on the day.

Relaunch of Training Band

Daventry Brass Band are re-launching their training band at the Band Hall on 3rd October at 6.30pm.
