90 years of consistent music-making
The GUS Band is a world-famous brass band, based in Kettering, 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 won many prizes and competitions over the years
Despite the changes in the band’s history brought by time and economic circumstance, one thing that remains the same is the standards and ideals started by the Felton brothers in 1933 when they started their band and proclaimed: “We are going to aim high”.
In January 1933, Mr. Fred Felton called a Northants Evening Telegraph reporter to his factory to tell him: “We are going to form a band and we are going to aim high”. Two years later the Munn and Felton Works Band were champions of Great Britain – and a brass band legend was born that has lived on for over 90 years.
