Wantage 'B' Band -  Second Section

The "B" Band mainly concentrates on competing at contests, however they are always in demand for concerts too.

 

2017 

Watch this space in March, they sound really great and are hoping for a great result too.

2015 

Having competed at Stevenage,they left with a brilliant result - Promotion to 1st Section in 2016.  

 

2014:

'B' Band's prowess was rewarded and we were extremely pleased to say that following their promotion to 2nd Section as of January, they then competed at the Regionals in Stevenage in March and gained 2nd place.  An amazing achievement as they had only just been promoted.   Then to cap it all they played at the Finals at Cheltenham in September and were placed 8th out of 17 bands.  What an amazing team.

 

Conductor

Danny Dullforce

Danny began playing in the Wantage Silver Band, and has progressed to be a leading euphonium player who has played with many top bands. He also plays tuba in a brass quintet. He showed a talent for conducting at an early age, and for some time was resident conductor of the top section Lydney Band; he now concentrates on the Wantage ‘B’ Band and has taken them from the 4th Section to the dizzy heights of 2nd Section AND from 2016 into 1ST SECTION.
