Gosport Solent Brass Band
The Band was formed with amalgamation of two bands in the area – Gosport Silver Band and Solent Concert Brass in 2011. Both bands amalgamated to continue to provide a sound musical ensemble and to continue to promote Brass music within the local area. As well as performing at local concerts and fetes, the band will be moving forward into the contesting arena. Gosport Solent Brass are currently a fourth section brass band, and from the expert guidance of Royal Marine bandsman Richard Sharp, the band are looking to progress even further!
