Brighton & Hove City Brass are an amateur brass band from the seaside resort of Brighton & Hove, Sussex, England. We regularly perform at a wide range of concerts, fayres, garden parties and parades in and around Sussex, occasionally venturing as far as Surrey and Kent.
We can provide soloists, small groups, and a full brass band for weddings and fanfares, through to large events at venues such as at the Brighton Corn Exchange and the Millennium Dome. Please visit the Diary page for the latest list of engagements. Please feel free to come and hear the band play if you are in the area.
This site contains information about the band, its members, where to see the band, and who to contact for more information on how to hire the band. We are always looking out for new players, so please go to our Vacancies page for further details.
We take part in a number of contests throughout the year, playing both test pieces and own choice entertainment programmes, and we are currently registered in the 3rd Section of the National Brass Band Association.
Our main aims are to improve the playing ability of the individual players of the band, and the band as a whole. Our programme of public performances involve us playing a wide range of music to cover many musical tastes, ranging from classical to modern pop taking in the big band sounds and the musicals on the way.
All the players are amateur musicians with full time jobs, in addition to rehearsing every Monday, or twice a week in the run up to contests, and practising at home in between. The band hold regular social activities including quizzes, treasure hunts, sports matches, and has twice visited Holland for a mixture of performance and holiday. The band is always looking at new ways of trying to expand the range of activities and performances of the band, as well as any possible link ups with other bands and/or musical groups.
