The BYG Big Band was formed in 2009 - Bells Yew Green, a village near Tunbridge Wells. We meet weekly on a Thursday evening in the village hall for rehearsals.
The band is made up of a six strong saxophone section, four trumpet players, three trombone players, bass, rhythm guitar, drums and keyboard player. To add to our repertoire we also have a Female Vocalist.
The ages of our musicians ranges from 18- 90 with experienced players from all walks of life. We are a Community band of mixed musical abilities and amongst us are some keen amateurs, experienced players and professional musicians.
We take both private and public bookings, as well as holding our own events so check out our gig guide for details of when and where you can hear us.
We have performed at Village Fetes, Garden Parties, Weddings, 1940's Themed Celebrations, 18th & 80th Birthday Parties! and many more.......................

We are always in need of 'deps' to cover absences and fill the occasional space should someone leave the band. If you would like to enquire about joining the band please do contact us.
