Glencore Support

Townsville Brass would like to acknowledge and thank Glencore for their support of our Association.

Glencore have played a huge part in our Townsville Brass Youth Band through financial assistance for new instruments, music and signage.  Their invaluable support has been greatly appreciated!


States Win

Townsville Brass are 2015 B-Grade Queensland State Champions!

For the first time in many years, the QLD State Championships was held in Townsville, attracting a fantastic turnout from North Queensland bands, as well as some of our Southern friends who made the trek.  Townsville Brass faced some tough competition from Cairns and Brisbane but came out on top with the championship.

Brass On The Grass

Townsville Brass continue with their famous Brass-On-The-Grass free outdoor concert series.  These public events rotate between The Strand and Riverway and provide entertainment for locals and visitors to experience our brass band in a wide range of genres.

Who are we?

Townsville Brass is proof that brass bands are thriving in North Queensland.  We are an organisation consisting of four bands:

Townsville Brass

With a proud history dating back over 100 years, Townsville Brass is the organisation's premier contesting and formal performance outfit.  It has had great success at local, state and national championships.  Most recently, the band won the 2014 National Band Championships (B Grade), came third in 2012, and was runner-up at the 2010, 2009 and 2008 National Band Championships.

Brolga Brass

Our organisation houses a training band for up-and-coming brass players to hone their skills in a more relaxed musical environment.  This band is also very successful in its own right, having won the QLD Division of the 2014 National Band Championships (D Grade)!

Townsville Brass Youth Band

The Townsville Brass Youth Band provides tuition to beginners and intermediate players in an ensemble environment, with a link directly to Brolga Brass and Townsville Brass for accomplished players to move forward.

Show Band

The Townsville Brass Showband is the Entertainment wing of Townsville Brass.  Adding a set of keyboards, guitar and bass guitar, the Showband shows the true versatility of a Brass Band.

All bands have active rehearsal and performance schedules throughout the year.  The bands compete at local, state and national levels at every opportunity, support local events and functions, and of course operate our very popular Christmas Carolling programme around our local streets.

Everyone is welcome, as we have a place for all people of all standards.  Come along for a listen or sit and play!
