Iain's Band

Iain's Band

Thank you to all those who have signed up to join Iain's Band - West Midlands. Spaces still remain in particular for Wednesday night rehearsals although flute and trumpet seats are filling up very fast!

The band is open to all instruments and players grade 4+ can take part for £3 per rehearsal. The venues are to be confirmed but the band will launch in Birmingham (as a brand new band!) in spring 2018. The band runs on Tues, Wed and Thurs evenings, 7.15-9.00pm conducted by Iain Masson.

The music will be varied and exciting in styles from heritage repertoire to modern pop arrangements, music from stage and screen, military marches and popular classics to new commissions and solo and ensemble opportunities with the band.

Iain's Band will travel to The Rhineland in 2020 on a concert tour representing their region and weekly music-making. Regular concerts and spotlight performances will take place across 2018 and 2019 to try to bring the cost of the tour down.

The exciting triple rehearsal night format caters for busy modern city workers and students who can come to one, two or all rehearsal nights - the band will be there to be enjoyed on each rehearsal night. Players from all across each of the rehearsal nights will come together for very special concerts and events.

Iain's Band is one of the UK's first regular triple rehearsal night community music clubs running weekly in our national musical story at a time when other music groups are moving to once-monthly rehearsals. It hopes to provide an alternative and a fair challenge to the rise of the monthly community music group and offering a broad musical diet to members each week, those who may only currently play commercial film, TV and games music. It hopes to re-address balance in our diverse region for all players.

To those who have turned away from weekly groups, Iain's Band invites you to re-connect with the weekly membership experience playing in a fun and exciting musical family with a bold and adventurous future. Participants will enjoy playing together as a band, with three options each week for you to make the most of!
