This community band was founded by the late Mr Fred Asher in 1963, starting out as the Boulder Primary School Band. As member ship
varied over the years, the name was changed to the Boulder Council Youth Band, Boulder Council Brass Band and finally the Goldfields
Brass Band. The present conductor, Sherril Ball, was one of the founding members and continues to devote her services to the Band, 40
years on. The Band entertains at most goldfields community events and has competed successfully at the state band championships.
Youth training has continued to be a priority for the band. For more information please contact the Secretary on 0438 273 092.

The band has entertained Esperance and surrounding communities for almost 40 years under the title of Esperance Citizens‟ Band.
Recently, the Band adopted both a new name and new uniform and now performs as the Esperance Brass Band. Boasting a membershi p
of about 24, EBB is comprised of an even mix of male and females, and youth, adult and senior members. The Band fosters the
development of musical abilities in people of all ages and contributes greatly to the success of many community events. These include

is proudly sponsored by the Esperance Shire Council and professionally led by Bandmaster, Laurie Palmer.
