Lofthouse Brass Band, based in West Yorkshire, has been providing live music to local areas and further afield since 1999. We are a friendly community band, whose focus is to entertain our audiences, improve our ability as players, take part and succeed in contests and enjoy our company.
Under the musical direction of Andrew Whitaker, we are looking forward to the band’s future improvement and what we can achieve as a team. Andrew is very enthusiastic, encouraging us to play well as a band and improve our individual playing. We are a band of mixed abilities and all of us are encouraged positively. We are ambitious and keen to move the band forward.
The band enjoys playing a good variety of exciting and engaging music, and a specific programme can easily be tailored to the requirements of your event or function. We enjoy playing fun, entertaining music to an appreciative audience.
