The Band

Updated: Sep 11, 2022

Based near the Cambridgeshire and Suffolk borders, Soham Comrades Brass Band are a friendly and ambitious second section band who compete in the London and Southern Counties area. The band reached the Second Section finals in 2014 and recent contest successes have included 2nd placings at the Crawley Entertainment Contest in May 2015 and at the Milton Keynes Contest in November 2015. More recently the band achieved the runner up prize of £1000 at the 2016 Butlins Mineworkers Open National Brass Band Festival held in Skegness. The band were placed 3rd in the 2nd Section LSC regional contest held in Stevenage in March 2016 receiving the Nelson Morris Memorial Cup and maintained this consistency of placings being awarded 4th place in March 2017, with the bass section receiving the Len Smith Memorial Trophy for the best bass section.

In March 2018, at the Regional Contest, the band achieved a respectable 7th position and also securing promotion into the First Section, based on the consistent high placings over the last three years. The band therefore will be contesting in the 1st section in 2019, a challenge we are very much looking forward to.
