Hire the band

As a traditional brass band, we have a huge selection of music in our library, both new and old. We cater for all types of event or function, such as:

  • Fun fair or gala
  • Wedding
  • Church service
  • Festival
  • Concert
  • Christmas
  • Carol service
  • Birthday
  • Other celebration
  • Themed event
  • Coroporate party or function

We are diverse in our ability to adapt to different situations and circumstances; and can perform inside, outside, sitting down, standing up or even marching! Let us know about your requirements and we'll be happy to help.

Availability

Generally speaking, the band is available for events that take place on weekday evenings and at weekends, but we may be able to accommodate other times.

Summer and Christmas are a busiest periods, so please check with us at the earliest opportunity so we can fit you in.

Location

We are based in County Durham, in the North East of England. This means we can easily travel to the surrounding towns and cities like Chester-le-Street, Bishop Auckland, Newton Aycliffe, Gateshead, Darlington, and Durham.

Areas like Newcastle and Middlesbrough are a bit further away, so we may need to arrange professional transport.

Fees

Depending on distance, number of players required and the length of time you'd like us to play for; our costs are always unique to your event.

Our typical costs range from around £150 to £350 though, so it's best to tell us as much about your event as possible so we can do our best to meet your needs and budget.

As a non-profit organisation, all money received goes directly back in to the band to pay for items such as music, uniform, instruments and supplies.
