Mission Statement
To play brass music to the best of our ability and perform at the highest level for the benefit of all. The City of Bristol Brass Band was formed in 1936 as the Fishponds British Legion Band by HS Perry (a local boot and shoe manufacturer who also played the euphonium) and William George Cozens, Lord Mayor of Bristol. The City of Bristol Band currently competes in the First Section, having gained promotion in January 2018. The current MD is Ian Holmes ARCM, ALCM a well-known and widely regarded Bristol born musical director.
