The Watford Band is a relaxed, traditional brass band based in Watford in the North West of London. Over 100 years old, we maintain an active schedule of performances alongside regular rehearsals and social events. More information about the band is listed on these pages.
We had another great concert last night! Thanks to everyone who came for being a fantastic audience with lots of flag-waving and singing. Thanks too to all our deps and special thanks to our guest vocalist Claire Boulter with her fabulous voice. Feedback from the audience was that it "was a truly wonderful evening. The range of talented musicans' hard work, joy and humour created a superb memorable feast. I would love to hear and see the programme again; thank you for coming together for a great performance. It was so good for us audience to feel part of the celebration of astounding composition, skill and high quality entertainment". We hope to see you all at our Christmas concert!
The band is open to players of any instrument and any ability, but we're especially after horn and tuba players. If you, or anyone you know play an instrument then please get in touch or drop along to a rehearsal!
Our "Last Night Of The Proms" concert in Chesham went very well. Lots of band members playing solos: Steve on flugel; Karen, Jordan and Amy on cornet; Martin on euphonium and Alex on xylophone (he usually plays trombone). We had a guest singer for the usual Rule Britannia, Jerusalem etc., and lots of opportunities for the audience to sing and wave flags, which they did with great gusto! Watch out for our next concert celebrating Christmas!
The band are very grateful to Watford council for sponsoring the purchase of our band jackets
