Brass Band

We are a friendly group of brass players who gather once a week to rehearse for concerts and the annual events including the University Brass Band competition (aptly named UniBrass), and the Whit Friday marches..

About Brass Band

Welcome to SUBB - Southampton University’s Brass Band! We are a collective of enthusiastic and friendly students and alumni who meet every Sunday night at 7pm in the union cafe. Any students are encouraged to grab a brass/percussion instrument and come and join us.

SUBB was founded in 2007, and is a non-auditioned band, allowing members to have fun playing music in a relaxed atmosphere. We play a very wide range of music, and the difficulty of our repertoire varies (sometimes significantly!) from piece to piece. We like a challenge!

Membership Fee Information

These are the current membership fees offered by Brass Band, although many clubs and societies offer a free period for new members to try out their activities.

NameCostValid PeriodDetailsJoin
Year Membership- Full£3030/09/2018 - 01/09/2019The subs paid by each member of the band (any external members pay this as well as a union fee) pays a contribution towards essential items the band needs to purchase each year, such as sheet music, concert venue hire and printing. The main chunk of subs is put towards making the bands performance and trip to the National University Brass Band Championships of Great Britain affordable to all members so only a small contribution per member is put towards travel costs/ accommodation if required at a later date. Subs are also spent on anything that unexpectedly needs buying such as equipment for the band including mutes, maintaining the percussion and hiring professionals for brass workshops in the lead up to UniBrass.Buy Now
