Welcome to the Denton Brass Band Web site
We are a 4th section brass band located to the southeast of Manchester city centre (M60 J24), in the town of Denton, Tameside. We are a non-profit making organisation, providing music to the community. In 2009 the band celebrated its 150th anniversary, having been originally founded in 1859.
In addition to performing a number of concerts and marches in the Tameside area, the band competes in a number of contests each year. This year it includes the North West Area Championships in Blackpool, the Rochdale contest and the famous Whit Friday contests around Tameside and Saddleworth, the greatest free show in the country.
We are a social, eager and friendly band. Players of all levels are always welcome.
