Leeds Best of Brass 2019/20: Brighouse & Rastrick Band

The Brighouse & Rastrick Band is regarded by many as the best and most consistent ‘public subscription band’ in the world. In its time the majority of premier band championships have been held by ‘Briggus’, most recently becoming National Champion Band of Great Britain in 2017, whilst the band has also attracted a formidable reputation for highly entertaining concerts for both the general public and brass band connoisseur.

In addition to having a first class and formidable reputation for performing highly entertaining concerts of wide public appeal, the Brighouse and Rastrick Band have many other notable triumphs to its credit in the highly competitive contesting field, with its record of major championship victories since it first came to British national prominence during the 1920s being certainly impressive.

One extra ‘purple patch’ in this fine record came in 1998 when the band held concurrently the English Masters, British National and European Championships, a unique ‘Triple Championship’, still not equalled today! Amongst the general public Brighouse and Rastrick is perhaps most popularly known for its famous 1977 hit parade success _The Floral Dance_ for which it won both Silver and Gold Discs for massive record sales and tremendous national and international acclaim.

Very firm roots were re-established in the town of Brighouse in 1995 with the building and opening of its own ‘purpose-built’ West Ridings’ headquarters. Whilst maintaining the bands great traditions and continued quest for musical excellence, with over 138 years of proud history behind the band, Brighouse & Rastrick are still fiercely financially independent and beholden to no one other than itself.

This concert is part of the Leeds Best of Brass 2019/20 series.
