Ellesmere Port Concert Brass

Established  1870

 

Welcome and many thanks for visiting our web page!

 

We are a traditional brass band which strives to provide quality entertainment for the general public by playing concert music rather than entering contests.

 

Ellesmere Port Concert Brass (EPCB) is a registered charity raising funds from a number of sources. Fortunately we have received sponsorship over the years from several  local employers, for which we are extremely grateful. We ask for a small subscription from members, but payment for playing concerts is by far our biggest income generator.

 

In the main we play in the Wirral and Merseyside area with excursions into rural Cheshire.  We meet weekly on a Thursday evening for practice at Capenhurst village hall (Ellesmere Port)

 

Please navigate the site to find out more about us including our long and proud history as a brass band and also our up to date Events Diary.

 


 

Our Second Summer Park Concert - Ashton Park

On another hot sunny summer afternoon we played  our second park engagement for 2017 in Ashton Park, West Kirby.  The audience were settled with drinks and ice creams around the marquee that gave us welcome shelter from the heat of the sun.

 

Just click on the video above to see short extracts from the concert.  The pieces featured are,  Ferry 'cross the Mersey, Ammerland, Lamgstrump Samba, L.O.V.E. Pirates of the Caribbean, Ballad for Benny and Themes of 007.

Sustras Festival Our first job of the day was to help Sustrans to recreate the popular early 1900s century Bike Carnivals of Ellesmere Port, with a decorated musical bike ride to the National Waterways Museum and a free day of bike activities at the Bikes and Boats Festival.  We didn't do anything too strenuous, just provide the music while they assembled on the concourse behind Ellesmere Port's Civic Hall ready to set off.
