Welcome to the home of the

East of England Co op Band.

We are a friendly, motivated and ambitious first section, competing brass band based in Ipswich, Suffolk.

East Anglian Band

The band is made up of players from all over East Anglia. Currently we have players travelling from Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex. We rehearse on a Monday evening and invite players to get in touch if you are interested.


The band contest every year in the London and Southern Counties Area and we also try to attend at least one other contest each year.


You can find the band taking part in and hosting a variety of events throughout the year. We try to play a varied diary consisting of concerts, fayres/fetes and special events. We play a good range of music suitable for all tastes.
