Friezland Band: Sunday Brass at the Boarshurst Band Club

A well supported concert at the Boarshurst Band Club gave Friezland Band and their recently appointed Musical Director, Max Stannard a confidence boost. Last night’s (Sunday 12 March) concert had an excellent turnout which pleased the band no end.

Tintwistle Band: Sunday Brass at the Boarshurst Band Club (February 2017)

Another sparkling display from Tintwistle Band

What can be said about any concert under the tutelage of Sarah Groarke-Booth other than its sleek programme? On a freezing February night, some hardy souls (this reviewer included) braved the zero celsius temperatures for the warm reception of an iconic brass banding venue. Warming the otherwise frozen audience was another sound Tintwistle performance.

Dobcross Youth Band: Sunday Afternoon Brass at the Boarshurst Band Club

Stunning performance kicks off 2017 concert season

Having the honour of opening this year’s programme of concerts at Boarshurst Band Club was a fairly well known local band. One a short bus or taxi ride from the venue, and one of the finest youth bands in the West Riding of Yorkshire.

Vernon Building Society Poynton Band: Sunday Brass at the Boarshurst Band Club

Poynton Band opens 2017 Sunday Brass programme with great style

Last night [29 January], VBS Poynton Band had the honour of opening this year’s programme of evening concerts at Boarshurst Band Club. The North East Cheshire band have been promoted to the Championship Section this season. They proved their worth in the venue, colloquially known as The Mecca of Brass Banding. For the same price as two pints of lager in the club, the audience were treated to a wonderful night of music.

A Sunday Brass Christmas: Boarshurst Silver Band’s Cracking Concert

An illuminating Christmas concert with a dose of silliness and the usual festive thrills

Throughout Saddleworth, the last Sunday night before Christmas sees each of the village bands put on their Christmas. Whether they have any outstanding engagements or not during the yuletide period, it is a chance to let their hair down. The programme is, as you would expect, more Christmassy. It is also an excuse to wear Christmas jumpers instead of the usual brass band uniforms.

Stockport Silver Band: Sunday Brass at the Boarshurst Band Club

A satisfying Boarshurst debut for the Silver Band

Stockport Silver Band marked their debut at the Boarshurst Band Club with a most enjoyable concert on the 11 December. The fourth section band gave us a good concert with an entertaining though none too highbrow programme. There was a good sprinkling of Christmas tunes as well.

Littleborough Band: Sunday Brass at the Boarshurst Band Club

Concert offers a wealth of well known favourites with a festive theme

Skelmanthorpe Band: Sunday Brass at the Boarshurst Band Club

Fantastic night with virtuoso cornet legend

Only weeks after a former Manchester United manager came to the Boarshurst Band Club, another legendary figure came to call last night. This time, one of brass banding circles rather than football. On Sunday 27 November 2016, virtuoso cornet legend, Jim Davies came to Boarshurst Band Club with Skelmanthorpe Band.
