Emley Brass Band is a traditional village based brass band with roots that date back to around 1870.
We are based in the middle of Yorkshire, are fortunate enough to have our own bandroom conveniently located opposite the White Horse Public house.
We do approximately 30 concerts a year for a variety for audiences, and also take part in 4 or 5 contests, testing ourselves against other bands and aiming to improve our standards.
We have an excellent reputation for highly professional and entertaining concerts and work very hard under the guidance of our innovative Musical Director Garry Hallas to keep presenting fresh new concerts every year.
Like all amateur Brass Bands we are unfunded so we have to try new avenue’s to raise vital funds to keep our organisation running. Check out our Real Ale Festival run every Easter in the bandroom!
