About DGB Community Band
Dronfield and Lowedges Community Brass Band is affiliated to the award winning Dronfield Genquip Band.
The band began in 2001 with just a handful of beginners and is now thriving with around 20-25 regular players of varying levels with a sensible calendar of engagements throughout the year, with an ambition to register to compete at the Yorkshire Area Contest.
During the lockdown, the band has produced 3 socially distanced videos, featuring special guests from some of the Country’s top Brass Bands, and in 2019, the band competed at the Denby Pottery Entertainment Contest, where they enjoyed a performance that earned them second place.
Sarah Billard was appointed as Musical Director in 2019, bringing with her a wealth of musical knowledge and brass experience. Read more about Sarah here
