Useful Links

I don't intend to try and keep an up-to-date list of links to other Brass band web sites. There are already several good sites around that do this (for example, the Brass Band Portal, below). It is very time consuming, and can get out of date very quickly. So I will leave that for others.

This page will be a list of links to other sites where:

  • people have assisted our Band,
  • people have assisted with this web site,
  • another brass band site has requested a reciprocal link with our site,
  • any other valid reason that comes along!

This KCB site is part of the following Web Ring

Good places to look for a list of Brass bands include the following:

Brass Band Portal Brass Band Portal


  • DivaA special thanks also to the Development Initiatives for Voluntary Arts (DIVA) for all their help, support, sponsorship and advice over recent times. This has been really appreciated by the Band. DIVA's web site can be found at, or they can be contacted at
  • Several members of KCB form the heart of a highly professional an excellent Jazz, Funk, Soul & Latin Covers Band called The Mighty Allsorts. They specialise in weddings, but can perform at just about any type of private or corporate event of any size, so you should check out their web site if a full brass band is too large for your own event.
  • The animated flag on our Home Page was kindly created by Richard Whincup. Unfortunately his original web site seems to have closed down and I have been unable to locate a new one. If anyone knows how to contact him now, please let me know. I would be happy to take over the animated flag generation if Richard (or someone) could help me out with the procedure?
  • Our site makes use of the free, easy to use and customisable FreeFind Search Engine. For more information or to enable searching on your own web site, please follow the link to their web site.

Reciprocal Links

We are occasionally contacted by other bands and requested to add reciprocal links to our site. As we are always willing to assist other brass bands, I will do so here.

Inactive sites, broken links or where the KCB reciprocal link has been deleted will be removed from the list.  

If your group/band/site would like a reciprocal link, please contact the WebMaster.

HTML / Web Site Assistance

In a similar support area, I will be happy to try and assist WebMasters of brass band web sites if they have any HTML or similar questions or problems that I may be able to help with, as several people have commented positively on this KCB site. However, please note that I am not a professional web designer, more of a keen amateur, and I am completely self taught. I don't use WYSIWYG generators (I don't like those that I have tried and they generate terribly bloated general-purpose code), so I hand-code all the pages myself. So if you feel that I could assist with your web site, then please contact me with your questions and I will see what I can do.
