International Staff Band
About International Staff Band
The International Staff Band seeks to promote the highest high standards of musical excellence and aims to show its Christian beliefs, influencing others through the music it plays. The members of the band give of their time freely, and indeed, playing in the band is an additional commitment to their involvement in activities at their local Salvation Army church, where many are involved in leadership roles. The band undertakes weekend engagements in Salvation Army centres throughout the UK each year, playing to capacity crowds in its concerts and leading Sunday worship services. The band also participates in most of the UK’s major Salvation Army events and in recent years has shared the concert stage with bands such as Black Dyke Band, Cory Band, London Symphonic Brass and the Don Lusher Big Band. On such occasions the band has been privileged to play in some of the countries finest concert venues including; The Royal Albert Hall, Royal Festival Hall, The Sage [Gateshead], Birmingham Symphony Hall and The Barbican. Other notable venues have included Westminster Abbey, St Paul's Cathedral and Buckingham Palace. Since its earliest days the ISB has toured overseas, visiting countries in which the Salvation Army is based from USA and Canada to Australia, New Zealand and Japan. European countries visited have included Switzerland, Germany, Holland and the Scandinavian countries. The ISB has released numerous CDs of Salvation Army music which have been featured in national television and radio broadcasts. Visit our website www.theisb.com for more information.
