We are based, as our name suggests, in the town of Keynsham, situated half way between Bristol & Bath in the south west of England.
There has been a brass band in Keynsham since before the second world war. The original band was wound up in approximately 1975 but was reformed in 1980.
The band currently consists of approximately 25 players with ages ranging from 16 to 60+, these players being drawn from many different
background. There is a core of approximately 15 players who have been with the band for over 20 years, and some of these having been in the band sinces its re-formation in 1980. Many of the players are former pupils of Broadlands school and/or former members of the Avon County Youth Brass Band (now disbanded).
The band has a varied repertoire, which leans away from the traditional brass band sound of marches and suites in favour of a more contemporary arrangements.
