About Us

The Durham University Brass Band is a vibrant society committed to showing the university the meaning of banding! Based in the music department, we rehearse weekly and put on regular concerts, perform for a variety of events and also participate in a national brass band competition. Except for certain positions, the band is non auditioning, promoting the ethos of inclusion and welcoming players of all abilities. We play a wide variety of music from traditional brass band marches and Proms style classics, to your favourite 90s hits, much of it written and arranged by our own players. We’re a friendly bunch of people and want everyone to get the most of the dubb experience: expect regular socials and the obligatory post-rehearsal drinks!

New for 2019 is the dubb Symphonic Ten-Piece, a high standard brass ensemble playing a wide range of music, from jazz to classical, show tunes to pop. The group typically comprises of trumpets, french horns, trombones and tubas.


Rehearsals take place every Monday evening at 19:00 until 21:30 during term-time. They are in the concert room in the music department which can be found on Palace Green next to the Cathedral.
