Welcome to the website of Comber Brass - the name for Comber Silver Band and our junior band - the Laureldale Brass Ensemble.
Based in the town of Comber in County Down, located at the northwest corner of Strangford Lough, there has been a Comber band for over 110 years.
With many band members coming from the Comber area, the band is proud to be at the heart of the community and performs at many engagements to strengthen this relationship.
This is a picture of the Comber Amatuer Silver Band that appeared in the Newtownards Chronicle as the band had won the Presidents Cup, the Ulster Cup and the McConnell Cup in the year 1953-54.
If anyone has anymore information about these competitions, or other pictures or newspaper clippings of the band, please either email them using the link on our Contact page or they can be dropped into the band practice on a Wednesday evening.
