Drogheda Brass Band has decided the show must go on! Its annual Christmas concert will be a virtual event streamed on the band’s Facebook page (search @droghedabrass) from 6pm on Sunday 20th December.
The band, like all other community and voluntary organisations, went into lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which resulted in the cancellation of its entire summer programme of performances that would usually include recitals at Oldbridge, Farmleigh House, the Drogheda Arts Festival and more.
National brass band champions of Ireland for eight of the last 10 years, Drogheda Brass Band is delighted to announce it is recruiting for a class of beginners. We want YOU to join our brilliant school of music and take part in fun competitions, perform grade exams through the renowned Trinity Guildhall in London and join our highly successful Drogheda Youth Brass.

A capacity crowd at the Droichead Arts Centre enjoyed what has been described by many as the best Drogheda Brass Band concert in years, as their School of Rock-themed night brought the house down. Most of the credit for the success of the concert must go to musical director Michael Maher, who devised the concept. But more than that, he stole the show in the second half by arriving on stage as Freddie Mercury as the band played Another One Bites The Dust!
The band will be playing at Walshestown FC's Annual Sports Day. In addition to the DBB the club are providing games for the kids, stalls, food and tea/coffee stands. All are welcome for what promises to be a great day for all the family.
