Musical Directors tenure comes to an end!!

After 10 years at the helm, last night our Musical Director Andy Grace announced that he had decided that the time was right for him to relinquish his position from the band. His last performance with DSB will be at Driffield Show next week. As you can imagine this was a massive shock to us all, but after 10 years of absolute dedication & commitment, we cannot do anything other than offer an enormous thank you for his remarkable stewardship. He has left the band in an excellent position & finding a replacement to fill the void Andy leaves will be tough, however it is something we must now look to do. Really all that is left for us to do is to wish Andy, Andrea & Alex all the very best for the future & hope that they will not be strangers as all of them are more than welcome at DSB anytime. Many thanks for all you have done Andy we all really appreciate it, from all your friends at DSB.


If any one feels they would like to be considered for the MDs vacancy at DSB, details in applying for the vacancy will be published in due course on our Facebook Page & on here. Many thanks

Driffield Silver Band is from the Market Town of Great Driffield in East Yorkshire. We have a versatile group of musicians of all ages who have a progressive attitude towards our music. Our aim is to provide a professional, friendly & welcoming approach to music and encourage full participation from all throughout our performances.

  

Driffield Silver Band are very proud to facilitate a programme of music for almost any occasion. We can act as featured artists, or support an existing event. We use our expertise to deliver a vast array of musical services to local communities, businesses & other organisations.

As one of the oldest Brass Bands in the country we pride ourselves on our longevity. However we realise that we cannot take this for granted. So, if you are an existing brass player of any age or ability looking for a band, or someone who would like to just come and have a blow, you are more than welcome.
