Meet Queensland’s Premier Brass Band

Welcome to the online home of the Brisbane Excelsior and Windsor Brass Bands

With its origins tracing back to 1912, the Brisbane Excelsior Brass Band has been a source of entertainment for Queenslanders for more than a century! Today, the Brisbane Excelsior band proudly competes in the A Grade section, where it faces off against some of the nation’s top bands. Over the years, the band has upheld a strong tradition of contest participation, garnering a notable four-year winning streak from 2006 to 2010.

The year 2002 saw the birth of Windsor Excelsior Brass, the second band within the organisation. Initially, the band placed a significant emphasis on community involvement and began its competitive journey in the D Grade section. And whilst the band’s dedication to the community still remains strong, over time, Windsor Brass has risen through the ranks and presently is a prize-winning B Grade ensemble.

Both bands place a strong emphasis on providing entertainment, considering concerts as important as competitions. They frequently appear at various locations across Brisbane, including parks, concert halls, and government events, while also organising their own concert series across South East Queensland.

Both bands are currently Queensland State Champions for 2023!
