Brass Noir - The Alternative Brass Ensemble

Discussion in 'Bandroom News - User Submitted' started by euphonium_john, Aug 22, 2008.

  1. We are delighted to announce the creation of a new brass ensemble, Brass Noir.
    While we are keen to up hold the important brass band traditions, Brass Noir has been created to satisfy the needs of people who want to play in a brass band, but choose to be different.

    Brass Noir is a new, bold venture amalgamating the best traditions in brass music with a healthy dose of influences from the Alternative side of Music and Culture.

    Although only a day old the band already has its first booking.

    Speaking about the new band, Conductor John North said,
    ' After thinking about things for a while, and talking to important people, Brass Noir is the only solution to many problems. This gives us and like minded people who want to join a chance to enjoy our music making, entertain the public, have a great time and maybe ruffle a few feathers along the way. The only way a new band is going to work is to be different - and we're going to be SO different - Vive Le Brass Noir!'

    The first Brass Noir meeting will be held at a venue, to be confirmed in due course.
