About the group

As the name suggests, this Colorado band is a flexible chamber ensemble made up of 5 to 15 players from the larger “Fountain Creek Brass Band”. This versatile sibling allows us to perform in venues and at events where the full brass band would be impractical. 

The whole concept of the "Versatile Brass" began in 1972 with James Shepherd who at that time was the the principal cornet with Black Dyke Mills Band. Shepherd assembled a group of brass band all-stars and led this ensemble of virtuoso players in hundreds of concert appearances in the UK, in radio and television programs, in recording albums on LP, Cassette and CD, as well as three memorable occasions playing at the National Festival concerts at the Royal Albert Hall. The band has been internationally acclaimed as well, taking its sound far and wide to Norway, Belgium, Holland, Berlin, West Germany, Switzerland, Monaco and even Australia.

The group plays a wide range of musical styles including Classic Brass Band Music, Marches, Jazz Standards, Classical and much more.
