Bridgtown Concert Band is opening its concert room doors for a special open evening event. On the 14th October, the Band will be performing at Bridgtown Social Club, Cannock free of charge and would like to invite you all. We are particularly interested in welcoming anyone that has an interest in music and playing. Old and new friends of the band will be treated to a relaxed social evening of music currently in the Band’s program, we would also like to invite you to bring along an instrument for a special “sit in” section of the evening, so if you have an instrument you haven’t played in a little while and would like to come along and play a couple of tunes you would be made very welcome.
The evening starts at 7.30pm and will include interval buffet. Please come along and meet our band on this special free open evening and don’t forget your instrument! This event is open to everyone so please spread the word.

Bridgtown Concert Band is a wind ensemble made up of musicians of all ages and ability from throughout the Staffordshire region. With woodwind, brass and percussion, a fantastic sound is created, which can be both powerful and dramatic, yet also delicate and intimate. The Band is based in the Midlands, but over its 23 year history has travelled extensively not only in Britain but also abroad. In 2013, Bridgtown Concert Band entered its 20th anniversary year and celebrated this with a spectacular concert in February. Please take the time to listen to some extracts from that concert below.

We are always looking for new members to join in with us and play! We are a friendly and sociable band, with a mixture of both age and ability. We welcome anyone that can play a Brass or Woodwind instrument at Grade 2 standard and above.
There are no auditions, we just need enthusiastic and committed players who can regularly attend Monday evening rehearsals.

Whilst we encourage new members to all sections, we are particularly interested in recruiting:

Clarinets /  Flutes
Tenor Saxophone / Alto Saxophone
Lower Brass / Trumpets

Rehearsals every Monday night 7 – 9 pm
at Bridgtown Social Club

(Except bank holidays)

We play all types of music from swing to pop, from Dixieland jazz to soundtracks and regularly play gigs in and around the Staffordshire area. We have also travelled further afield in the UK and abroad, having also had several successful foreign tours in Germany, the Netherlands and Spain.

So, whether you are fairly new to playing or have an instrument in the loft that you want to dust off, please give us a call and arrange to stop by one of our Monday night rehearsals to listen in!
