NLB Network Marching Band
NLB Network Marching Band is our Network's marching unit consisting of our Corps of Drums and Marching Brass and Wind players. We also perform as a static Symphonic Wind Band/Concert Band with a broad range of instruments and concert repertoire - we work closely with our sister-project, Enfield Film Orchestra www.enfieldfilmorchestra.co.uk
This unit provides full marching capability for the North London Brass Network for mobile and outdoor events, including parades, festivals, carnivals, Beating Retreat ceremonies, Acts of Remembrance, sporting events and more.
Our Corps of Drums consists of marching snare drums, bass drum, tenor drum and cymbals. Instrumentation for our Marching Brass and Wind includes cornets, horns, baritones, trombones, euphoniums, basses (tubas), piccolo, flutes, clarinets, and saxophones (alto and tenor). Four static concerts, we also welcome oboes, bassoons, baritone saxophones, string basses, orchestral percussion and more.
We study the standard march repertoire as performed by North London Brass Network bands, a selection of full-instrumentation military band marches and drum solos.

If you are a complete beginner, whatever your age or previous musical experience, we would be delighted to teach you how to play marching percussion, where spaces are available.
