The largest of the instruments in the band with 2 E-flat and 2 B-flat basses making the full compliment. It takes a lot of puff to play one of these instruments, so bass players tend to be on the large size!
Andy Burchett - B Flat Bass
Andy is the longest serving member of the band, having just reached the 40 year mark! In that time, until recently he had played only two instruments – the smallest (Cornet) and the biggest (B Flat Bass). Andy has recently moved back onto Bass after a couple of years on Baritone.

Howard Musson - E Flat Bass
Howard first joined the band in 2005 after moving from London to Brighton for a job with a local DVD Publisher. He had previously played in Youth Orchestras in London and with Grimsdyke Brass Band in Harrow before his move south. After a few years away from Brighton Brass he re-joined in 2013 just before the birth of his daughter Ivy, and enjoys nothing more than spending time with her and also playing football and wicket-keeping for Streat & Westmeston Cricket Club.
