Having garnered mass public interest in Britain for two centuries, brass bands are rapidly gaining popularity in the US, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, and even Japan. In Canada there are somewhere between 10 & 20 bands, with more starting up every year. No wonder! Although brass instruments are not simple to play well, the sound of a really good brass band is, frankly, awesome.
