The GUS band are delighted to announce that, after a hard-fought tussle with regular rivals Desford and Ratby, they were crowned the Midlands Area Champions for 2020!
About The GUS Band
The GUS Band is a world-famous brass band, based in Northampton, England. Originally known as the Munn and Felton Works Band, it was formed by Fred Felton in 1933 in Kettering, England. Since then, the band has gone on to establish itself as one of the leading bands, with a string of titles to its name and regular appearances at the National Brass Band Championships in the Royal Albert Hall.
