Halesowen Brass Band was formed in 1987 to bring brass banding back to Halesowen.
Today there are players of different abilities, some old timers, some new players, but all enjoying playing together.
New members are always welcome. Gary Bell, one of the founder members, is now the band’s musical director. He has had many years of experience with brass bands as well as jazz and dance band music.
The band is a registered charity and entirely self supporting. They play at many different venues across the West Midlands.
Rehearsals take place every Tuesday from 7.45 to 9.30 at Two Gates Ragged School, Toys Lane. B63 2HY
