The Band has approximately 30 brass and percussion players. It is under the baton of Nigel Horne, an English conductor steeped in the tradition of brass bands and with many years’ experience playing in and conducting brass bands of all levels.
We provide a series of concerts throughout the year at various locations in Rockville and nearby towns.

What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 60 - 120 minutes
The band plays a wide variety of genres, from marches and transcriptions of well known music, to serious and demanding original works. By performing entertaining, quality concerts to audiences within the D.C. metropolitan area and beyond, we aim to be ambassadors for the sound of brass and percussion.
We prefer performing on a stage, though we can perform at room level if required.
We require enough room for 30 seated musicians in a well lit environment. Each player has a music stand and percussion requires extra space.
