North London Brass Edmonton - new band launching in London N9

Discussion in 'The Rehearsal Room' started by North Londoner, Feb 12, 2011.

  1. North London Brass is launching a new brass band in Edmonton on 14 March 2011 to rehearse weekly on Monday evenings at St Peter's Church, Bounces Road, Edmonton N9 8JP.

    NLB Edmonton is accessible to players of all experience and ages. The plans include developing an Academy Band (training band) to run alongside the NLB Edmonton Senior Band.

    Members of NLB Edmonton will be eligible for our Massed Band concerts and events, and for call up to the North London Brass Staff Band drawn from our established bands NLB Enfield and NLB Southgate, to which we are adding NLB Edmonton and, from September 2011, an NLB Muswell Hill band.

    The North London Brass network, formed in January 2010, now works with approx 60 brass players and our positive thinking bands appeal particularly to lapsed players and mature learners, although we have a good crop of young players and experienced banders who are excited by the possibilities and opportunities our banding network presents. We work with enthusiastic, professional Bandmasters and coaching staff as well as a team of experienced brass players assisting as Mentors.

    We accept everyone, whatever their starting experience or ability in the belief that music is a gift for us all to enjoy, from the humblest learner to the most accomplished soloist. Our structure and choice of band nights within a reasonably close geographical area means that players can attend several times a week if they're keen enough or they can choose the local band that best suits their current level and preference of rehearsal style.

    We are holding a concert on the evening of Wednesday 2 March 2011 at St Peter's Church, our NLB Edmonton host venue, to give the new band a recruitment boost. Please feel welcome to come along to see what it's all about and please also get in touch if you live in the North London area and feel inspired to help us with our infectious style of brass banding evangelism.

    North London Brass also works closely with The Boys' Brigade in London to support youth banding and also performs occasionally with the Brigade's London Stedfast Association Brass Band for ex-members and Officers.

    You can read about NLB Edmonton and about our other North London Brass bands on our website at

    Please contact us if you would like to help us or if you know of any unattached players, particularly in the Edmonton, London N9, area who may wish to join us.

    Thank you

    Thanks very much. Hope all's well with your band too.
