Silk Brass is a First Section brass band providing high quality, entertaining musical performances throughout the North West of England.
Founded in 1997, Silk Brass is based in the picturesque village of Marton half-way between Macclesfield and Congleton. Originally the band had just ten players, but soon filled its ranks to form a full-size, traditional brass band.
The band performs throughout the North-West of England with concert programmes featuring something for everyone - from traditional brass band repertoire, to modern pop arrangements - enthralling audiences wherever they go.
The band is also a formidable contesting band, having competed, and won, at numerous competitions across the UK. It is currently ranked in the Second Section for band competitions, but from January 2016 the band has gained promotion to the First Section and will be competing against some of the finest bands in the country.
We are very lucky to have our own bandroom where we rehearse on Monday and Thursday evenings 8pm till 10pm.
