Regent

History

Originally based in Wembley, Regent Brass was founded in January 1985 by a collective of young brass musicians in Brent under the leadership of Paul Fensom. The band has recently relocated and currently rehearses in the Chalk Farm Salvation Army hall.

Under their current Musical Director Alan Duguid, in his second tenure of the band, Regent Brass have pursued an ambitious and eclectic programme of musical activity, regularly performing contemporary music including several world premières and recently performing in the prestigious World Music Contest in Kerkrade, Netherlands.

From its formation, the band rose from Fourth Section to the Championship Section in only six years and have won the London and Southern Counties Area Contest on five separate occasions. They most recently took the Championship Section title in 2013. They have also qualified for the National Finals of Great Britain nine times and won the National Third Section in 1988.
