    You might say Black Dyke because of points status at the moment but i ask you to think about the all time greatest brass band from history to present from their success rate.​

    How do you measure success? Fame, financial, contest results, rankings...
    My all time favourite band is Grimethorpe - they kept up a consistently high standard even when they weren't winning lots, they have one of the best collections of recordings imo, and they've always had some great individual players in the ranks.

    That's the problem with this kind of question. If you base it on ranking point sthen there is no discussion
    If you base it on the criteria mentioned above the question turn from what is the best band to what is your favourite band

    CWS Manchester?

    Still the most wins at the North West Area despite folding nearly 20 years ago.

    No Desford? Arguably the greatest band ever to grace a contest stage and still doing more foreign tours than most every year to promote British banding!! I think this is a bit of an ambitious poll in all honesty!

    Brassed off aside (sorry Grimey) but for a band to not only appear with the Beatles but to have also had a train named after them along with a host of other money making and indeed status making ideas such as tv broadcasts, links with Leeds uni etc. it has to be the boys and girls from Queensbury as THE most successful band ever. And the trophy cabinet doesnt look too bad either!

    I suppose it could be changed to every band with in reason of being named on here. So in a nut shell any band that is mentioned should be added to the poll. Lets have some fun.!!!

    How long is a piece of string?

    Sorry - but there is a limit to the number of options you can have within a poll. I thin kit's either 10 or 15, not sure. So, a poll isn't really gonna work in this thread really I don't think.
