New Zealand Champion B Grade Band 2014 | Champion Drum Major of New Zealand 2013-2014

New Plymouth Brass is the oldest brass band in New Zealand. It plays a major part in the cultural and civic life of the New Plymouth District and is recognised as one of the top musical groups in the region. The band competes in the National Brass Band Championships annually, and are currently recognised as a New Zealand B-Grade Band. Many of its players have won, and continue to win national titles. Our mission is to provide musical excellence through fellowship and fun; to build a band that the community is proud of, and to succeed in all aspects.
We practice on Monday and Thursday nights, with Junior band held on Wednesdays. New members are welcome, please contact our musical directors by email using the links below for more information.

It's normally our busiest time of the year...

We are so disappointed that due to Covid restrictions, we are unable to entertain the Taranaki community at the many Christmas events and parades that we normally do over the festive season.

Carolling around the streets of New Plymouth has been a tradition for as long as any of us can remember, and it is so sad that this can not continue in 2021.

We would LOVE to spread some Christmas cheer to our community any way we are still able to do so.  If you are able to accommodate a small group of band members to play Christmas carols outside of your business on a suitable evening, please contact Sharon Lee, phone 021 676 805, or on the email link at the bottom of the page. 

Christmas is our biggest fundraising time of the year, and the money raised at our many Christmas performances is what keeps the band running for the rest of the year.  If you are able, please donate to our Give-a-little page

Thank you so much for your support.
