us? Find out all you need to know here............
We are currently looking to recruit more
Trumpeters, Trombone players, Sousaphone or Bb Bass, Euphonium or Baritone players (Sorry, no more
percussion at the moment). We can produce music in any form, so if you are a Trombone player who only plays from Bass Clef, we can still use your talents!
Guggenmusik is a phenomenon in Europe with bands
beginning to pop up all over. We were the first Guggenmusik Band in the UK &
now have been joined by another band in Barnsley but there are thousands of
Guggenmusik Bands in Germany & Switzerland & the standard is improving
rapidly so if you wanna play 'Greenday' numbers on your trumpet or 'Tom Jones'
on a Sousa & most other styles between contact
us or read more below....
How old do I have to be?
We can take players from 15 to 115 (younger in
exceptional circumstances, feel free to ask)
How much time does it take up?
We practice on about 30 Fridays per year between
8pm & 10pm. We have a gig on about 25 weekends per year & like to have a
trip abroad once per year as well for a long weekend. I guess you may need to
practice as well!! Band members manage to come to most rehearsals which are great fun - in fact, as much fun as our gigs!!!
We will often wander off to the pub together to whet our pallets after a hard evening of playing!
I was a brass player but I'm a
little rusty (or even a lot)
We can provide music written with valve positions
if necessary. We can help with basic practice techniques so that you can get
yourself back up to speed. We can provide simple music parts that allow all
levels to participate.
I think I'm a reasonable musician
& I want to have fun with my music
Our music grows more challenging each year as we
strive to make our music better to play & listen to. Perhaps you are a brass
band player looking for a little more excitement, particiption & audience
feedback. If so we are the band for you....
