The East Grinstead Concert Band is a non-marching Wind Band of 24 to 32 woodwind, brass and percussion players, founded in 1974 from the original Town Band.
They play typical military Band concert repertoire, introducing as much variety as possible into their programmes. These include marches, concert overtures, classical arrangements, rock, selections from the shows, and big-Band swing music, so there is something for everyone! The Band can tailor a programme to almost any requirements, including weddings, garden parties, village fetes, church services and Christmas carols.
Their public performances are mainly in the open-air in summer, at Bandstands in pleasure gardens and on seaside promenades, with some indoor concerts in the winter.
The Band draws its members from a wide area around East Grinstead, and encourages promising young players to join experienced musicians and achieve high standards, under their Director of Music John Gowers.
