Auckland City Brass after playing at the Mt Roskill RSA ANZAC Day service, 2014.

Welcome to Auckland City Brass! We are a community brass group that rehearses in Three Kings, Auckland at The Old Pumphouse, on Monday evenings. We frequently perform for community events, as well as in concerts and “play outs” that we hold at our band rooms and other venues, several times a year.

In the 2014 Brass Band Association of New Zealand National Competition, we placed first in the “Own Choice” section, and second in the “Test Piece” section, bringing us to second place overall and cementing our place as a B grade band. Since then, we have been working hard to continue improving our standard for our end-of-year concerts.

Bandsmen for Hire

Aside from our community contributions, Auckland City Brass offers a variety of services, including:

  1. Small brass groups (quintets/sextets) for private functions or other purposes.
  2. A full brass band for performance at celebrations or other larger functions.
  3. Marching in parades or ceremonies.
  4. … And many other (legal) things at your request!

If you are looking for a brass band or smaller brass group for any reason, feel free to contact us for a quote.
