The band is now based in Birtley in Gateshead, not far from the area of Felling.
Recent years saw the band rise to be one of the most successful Championship Section bands in the North of England, winning the area title in 2012 and attending the National Finals in the Royal Albert Hall - a first for this band.
Contesting is not the only focus of this band however, with a busy concert schedule around the North of England and further affield, travelling all over the country to give distinctive concerts.
The band is proud of its history in nurturing young talent, particularly local players, and provides fantastic opportunity for up and coming brass players who wish to perform and contest at the highest level, both locally and nationally.
The band enjoy a wide ranging repertoire for concerts with pieces for full band, smaller ensembles, duets and soloists in a variety of styles including classical, jazz, broadway and sacred music, as well as traditional brass band tunes.
The band rehearsals on Sunday and Thursday.
