Welcome to the website of Comber Brass - the name for Comber Silver Band.
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.
