Deepcar Brass Band was formed in 1988 as a training band for local youngsters. A founder member of the band persuaded a group of his colleagues from Deepcar Police Station to take part in a sponsored walk and the £545 they raised was enough to start the band. From those early days when the founders begged and borrowed ancient instruments, we have progressed to a well equipped band mainly due the enthusiasm of members and local community support.
Whilst we are no longer a training band, it remains the band policy to encourage and train new players through an active training programme and our players now encompass a wide range in age and experience.
