Who We Are

The Golden State British Brass Band, a non-profit, community organization, was founded in 1996 by Penny Dodd and Norm & Linda Taylor, and endeavors to rehearse, perform, and record music written and arranged in the traditional British Brass Band style. The band attracts its membership from all over the greater Los Angeles, California, USA region.

Here is a list of our musicians.     We also have a photo album.     The history of our band is summarized on this page.
