Welcome

We’re a standard brass band, and a part of the community life of Easingwold and its neighbourhood. Founded in 1901, we play at local events throughout the year — fêtes and garden parties, parades, village fairs, charity events, Christmas functions and official occasions — with summer performances on the bandstand in Easingwold’s Memorial Park.

We currently have VACANCIES for a solo cornet, 2nd horn and principal E-flat bass.  We’re registered in the 4th Section, with a view to entering an occasional contest once we’re back up to full strength.

We offer a warm welcome to new players. If you’ve recently moved into the area, or you’d like to get back into brass banding after a break, or maybe you’re a student at one of York’s universities or colleges; or if you just feel ready for a change — come along for a blow!

We have a Brass Beginners’ Club — a great way to learn to play a musical instrument.  See below.

Learning a brass instrument already?  We’ll help you improve and develop your playing.  A bit rusty?  Brush up your playing and regain your confidence.  Join our Intermediate Band — see below.
