Comber Brass

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.

Whit Friday Marches 2022

On Friday 10th June the band played outside of Northern Ireland for the first time in it's history when it participated in the annual Whit Friday contests.

 

This is an event for brass bands that has a history dating back to at least 1884 and happens in the Saddleworth and Tameside areas of north west England.

 

Playing 'The Chieftain' as the street march and 'Castel Coch' as the contest march, the band was able to participate at the contests in Greenfield, Friezland, Upper Mill, Dobcross, Delph and Denshaw, which are all in the pituresque Saddleworth area.
