Townsville Brass is the flagship of the organisation. It is currently ranked at B-Grade, and are the current B Grade National Champions, having won the championships in Brisbane over the Easter weekend in 2014. In recent years, the band have placed third (2012), second (2010, 2009, 2008) in the National Championships.
The band is under the very capable leadership of Mr Dale Hosking, a very successful player himself. Dale won the Open Cornet Solo at the Nationals in 2008, and came 2nd in the Open Flugel Horn Solo in 2010.
Playing with Townsville Brass is a lot of fun, and the atmosphere is very supportive and social when competing.
Many of the players have come up through the ranks of the training band, Brolga Brass, as well as from the local schools and their brass programme.
