Syston Band is a friendly community 4th section brass band that offers a warm welcome to players of all ages and abilities. We always welcome new members or guest players and are currently looking to recruit Cornets (front row), a Horn and any Bass players.
Following a significant improvement in our competition results from 2016 under the direction of MD Chris Banks, our 4th place regional result under the direction of interim MD Gary Smallwood has achieved the band a promotion to the 3rd section in 2019. We are also pleased that Gary has agreed to be our resident MD.
We practice at our premises on Syston Park which we fondly refer to as 'The Band Hut'. Feel free to visit us and join in.
Full band practice: Monday 7.45 - 9.45 pm
Training band: Tuesday 7.30 - 8.30 pm
The band undertakes a number of contests including the Midlands area, Leicester and Oxford contests as well as sometimes taking part in entertainment contesting and the famous Whit Friday Marches in Saddleworth. We also have various summer and Christmas concerts and are proud to take part in the Syston Royal British Legion Remembrance event each year. Around Christmas time you are sure to find us lifting the Christmas spirits playing carols around the local town areas.
Want to know more about the band? Give us a call. Or just drop in for a chat and meet us in person. You are welcome to bring your instrument (or we'll lend you one) and sit in to have a blow.
