About The Yorkshire Military Band

One of the finest military concert bands in the UK. Playing at corporate, private, charity and community events and proudly at Royal Palaces
Brass band
Public liability insurance of £5 million

The Yorkshire Military Band is a concert band based in South Yorkshire As well as concerts, we undertake marching engagements and like to perform Beating Retreat as performed in the short video here We are uniformed and very smart and not only looking the part, we also sound fantastic. We play all kinds of music from modern to big band, classical to marches and film to musicals. If you desire a fanfare team then we can not only provide that but also, you could have your own handwritten fanfare. We are reliable and have an excellent reputation for the standard that we have achieved Leaving the uniform and salutes to one side, we can provide roaming musicians in a Dixie style and playing modern covers and can perform at weddings to get guests dancing or a chilled vibe with a brass band sound with or without singer. Add to this a German Oompah band and the house will be rocking. We also have a 12 piece Corps of Drums who always delight with their displays. This also include a black light display with flashing sticks and slick movements

Was extremely happy with the service and performance provided by Louise and the Kase Chiefs. They were perfect for my Oktoberfest event and got the party going with fun games and thigh slapping stompers. Received lots of compliments about the band and the event and wouldn’t hesitate to book again. Thanks for your help. Much appreciated 😀

The Yorkshire Military Band was amazing from start to finish. They really helped rouse the crowd and keep them occupied throughout the set. A big thank you Louise and the band.

Used their Brass quintet for a military Mess function. Extremely good music, very prompt and overall a wonderful and key addition to the event, really tying everything together to make the event all it could be. Would definitely recommend.

This is a great band who we should see and hear more of. Very flexible in what they play and will consider special requests in advance. Professional Conductor Louise keeps everybody entertained when introducing items and is clearly loved and liked by the band members and audience alike. Very supportive of our now annual charity concert, raising funds for needy children at their school in Uganda. Aware that the band can perform military, classical, pop, film, musicals and big band music so are very versatile and accommodating.

We rebooked The Yorkshire Military Band for Armed Forces Day 2019 on the back of our previous bookings because of; the quality and variety of the military band music, the band members are all presented really well in their uniforms and because of the practical band input they gave us into the planning of our very first event including supporting us in a pre cursa fundraising event at the Penistone Paramount. But what really struck us was the way the band was received by the public and the overwhelming positive feedback that was given. The Yorkshire Military Band on the day of the 2019 Armed Forces Day event helped us out with big holes that presented a massive problem at the last minute right across our entertainment schedule thereby saving the event from awkward timing issues where we would have undoubtedly lost a significant amount of footfall. It's fair to say the The Yorkshire Military band was the backbone of Penistone Armed Forces Day.
