Keep playing during lockdown

Updated: Jun 27, 2020

As a brass band community that thrives on coming together to play, lockdown may have appeared as a real challenge to our way of life. However, brass players all over the country have taken to technology to record, multi-track, and share their music without stepping out the door - and GBBA member bands are no different!

There have been many fantastic performances - solos and ensembles - from GBBA member bands during lockdown. We have shared a selection below for your enjoyment, and to serve as a reminder that lockdown does not mean a lock down on music and that we can still play together despite being miles apart.

Not featured below? Get in touch with GBBA and send us your videos and news so we can share them with others. Keep playing!
