After 8 years performing as The Royal Agricultural Society of WA Brass, the band is now looking for a new naming rights sponsor. The Royal Agricultural Society has chosen not to renew the bands’ sponsorship, citing two consecutive years of bad weather at the Royal Show, along with a reduction in numbers that attend each year. We are extremely grateful that the Royal Agricultural Society of Western Australia has allowed us to continue rehearsing at the Claremont Showgrounds. The band will also continue to perform each evening during the 2017 Royal Show, out on the main arena. Whatever the weather!

WA Brass has a long and successful history stretching back almost sixty years. During this time it has established itself as a leading band in the Western Australian community banding and has been ‘A’ Grade champions in Western Australia since 1979. The band has been known under several names over its history. When the band originated it was as the junior band of the 11/44th Battalion of the City of Perth Regiment. In 1960 the band was incorporated as the National Youth Brass Band of Western Australia. After this for a period of time, sponsorship was received from the City of Stirling and the band performed as the City of Stirling Brass Band. The band later became known as the 6KY Brass Band and in 1984 sponsorship was transferred to Swan Television and the Band performed under the name Channel Nine Brass Band. Midland Brick sponsored the band from the beginning of the 1990’s until 2008. The Royal Agricultural Society of WA took up sponsorship of the band in 2009 until June 2017. The Band now performs under it’s registered name, WA Brass. At least until we source another naming rights sponsor…
