The band were pleased to be able to perform for the village of Byfield at their Songs Of Praise Evening held on Sunday 3rd June.

With the Holy Cross Church of Byfield behind us we entertained and accompanied the crowd.

In March 2003, Daventry Brass became Midlands Regional 3rd Section Champions. This was the first time in the bands history and only the fourth time the band has qualified for the Finals. It is a great honour for the band, not only are they representing the town and county but the Midlands Region. This page has been put together to show how money was raised to enable the band to go and pictures of our time at the finals, in Dundee over the weekend 19th - 21st September.

Fund Raising - Sponsored Cyle Ride On a bright warm Saturday in September about 20 member and supporters of the band swapped brass and mouthpieces for pedals and saddles and took part in a ride around Pitsford Water to raise fund for the trip to Dundee.

We have raised in excess of £2000. £750 came from Barclays Bank Employee Involvement scheme, £ for £ matching.

A big thank you to all who took part and to those who sponsored us.

With the contest coming up, we needed somewhere to rehearse to get a feel for playing the test piece in different acoustics. We were fortunate to be able to use the Main Hall at Danetre School.

It also provided a perfect opportunity for us to do a photo shoot... Here is the band in action!

We have compiled a selection of photos taking you from 1998 through to 2000.

Here we are caroling in 1998

Here is a shot of the band taken at the areas in 2000:

In May of that year we took place in the Daventry Festival. Here we are outside Waitrose:

And finally here we in our annual appearance at the Everdon Fete in August.

We've dusted off our photo albums and found these from the archives.... see if you can recognise yourself, or maybe certain well know members of our band!

Some great pics from a garden party in Dodford, and the Junior band from 1983!!!
