Shepherd Group Brass Band

Shepherd Group Brass Band are York based and are sponsored by Shepherd Building Group, which has had its roots in and around the York community since 1890, and retains its head offices in the City today. We currently have 5 ensembles and over 150 players.

The band was first formed in 1903 as The Cocoa Works Band, and has progressed through The Rowntree Band and The Nestlé Rowntree Band to the present day and The Shepherd Group Brass Band.

The band is always looking for more players, regardless of age and experience, and we would welcome anyone to our rehearsals.
