The Final Performance of 2017

The Final Performance of 2017


The shoppers of Tesco in Hornsea will be blessed with the presence of DSB to help them with their Christmas Shopping. We will be playing carols from

10:30 till 14:30 and we hope not to repeat any of them!

We hope to have a fantastic turnout from the band, and a really great sound. Then we can spend time with our families over the Christmas Period!

Our first rehearsal back will be on Friday 5th January at the Bell Hotel in Driffield.

We hope everybody has a fantastic festive period, and continues to support us in 2018!

Drifield Silver Band Awards 2017
Driffield Band Awards 2017
At our annual Christmas Concert, this year on the 3rd December, we presented the three main awards for the band. The recipients were as follows;


Fred Robson award for most improved player (U-18) went to Katie McDonagh
Norman Blades award for the most improved player (O-18) went to Malcolm Kellett
Tony Wilson award for Outstanding Contribution to DSB in 2017 went to Simon Miller


These awards were all intensely competitive, with a number of outstanding people in the running for each one. Everybody should be rightly proud of their achievements this year. Congratulations to those who won, and to those who were nearly there!

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. Currently we are unable to offer the service of a marching band. 

  

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.
