Welcome to Gawthorpe Brass '85 and thanks for visiting our website. We hope you like it!
We are proud of being a little different to many other community Brass Bands. We are a family of around 150 people, of all ages, backgrounds and abilities who come together to make music. As you may have guessed from our name, we were formed in 1985, so in celebration of our Silver Anniversary in 2010, we recorded & released a new CD! Please look at the 'GB '85 Goodies' tab for more information.
Our brand new CD, entitled 'Victorious' has recently been recorded and will be available in time for Christmas! The ideal stocking filler for those who love a bit of brass! Email email@example.com to register your interest.
Our organisation is very fortunate to have a Senior Band, a Youth Band, a Junior Band, a Training Band, a Beginners Club, a Music Workshop and a Music Fun Club. We are completely self-financing, and therefore rely on making music that people want to listen to.
Our Senior Band recently qualified for the Fourth Section National Championships of Great Britain and have also been featured on Simon Cowell's new prime time TV programme, Food Glorious Food!
Our repertoire is very diverse, from traditional marches & hymns, all the way through to the pieces from stage & screen. We've even featured music from 'The Killers'!
Our site is still developing, so if you have any suggestions you'd like us to consider, please contact our webmaster on:
