F.A.B.B. - Friends of Avonbank Brass Band

Behind almost every organisation there will be a group of willing volunteers working away to ensure the organisation will run smoothly.

For Avonbank Brass Band we have a FABBulous organisation called FABB (Friends of Avonbank Brass Band). These unsung heroes & heroines work tirelessly to organise events and raise money for the band.

At every concert they are there, selling tickets, manning the door, selling raffle tickets and helping in every way possible. They hold a stall at the Christmas Fayre in Evesham to raise money. But the biggest function FABB perform is to run the 100 Club for the band.

100 Club

The 100 Club has as the name implies 100 numbers.
Members chose a number and pay £1 per week.

Each month, prizes of £50, £20 and £10 are awarded, with a quarterly bonus of £150

FABB can be contacted via Eric Green on 01386-47106.

FABB also publish a news paper for the band informing every one of the bands activities, results and future concerts. In recent times this cash had enabled the band to redecorate the band room, purchase some new uniforms whilst cleaning the existing stock.

The band members really cannot thank this group of people enough for their work. Avonbank is a great band to play in, but the work of FABB makes everything so much easier.

From the Band to FABB ………THANKYOU!!!!!!!

AVONBANK TRAINING BAND.

 

The main aim of the Training Band is to bring brass band music and brass playing to people who perhaps have never imagined playing a brass instrument before. It’s never too late to start learning and having no musical background is honestly no barrier to enjoying what is a fantastic and rewarding pastime.

The band contain players who have played before and are returning to music after perhaps a break due to work or family commitments. It also contains young and older people who, well just fancy having a go! People find being part of a band and playing in an ensemble is very rewarding regardless of experience or age.

The Training Band rehearse on a Wednesday Evening in the Avonbank Band room in Evesham, they have a full set of instruments. Tuition is free, music is free and free use of an instrument basically, what have people got to loose.

If you are a returning player or someone who would like to learn to play a brass instrument or you just would like to know more about how brass bands operate then The Avonbank Training band would be the place for you.

Ring Gordon Lane on 01386 40514 for a chat, he has over 60 years of banding experience and would love to hear from you.
