The GB Home Guard Band has an extensive library containing a full repertoire of military band music. As a result it is able to perform a very wide selection of music and can and produce a programme to suit any occasion. The programme below was performed at our showcase concert on 25th January 2015 and was,in the main, a tribute to our armed forces.
The Band's usual instrumentation for concert performances is 21-25 musicians. However, smaller ensembles can be provided, for instance an 11 piece military band, woodwind and brass quintets and an oompha (Bavarian) band. In fact if you require vintage live music we can probably supply it, or put you in contact with musicians who can.
