Acceler8 Band (formerly TCTC Group Band and the Co-operative Band, Crewe) have been a well established group since 1955. Since 2000 the band have competed in the prestigious Championship Section, in the North west of England and have taken part in tours of Austria and Holland, on several occasions.
Entertaining an audience with a variety of musical styles has been key to the band’s success and having taken part in two professional productions of the musical Brassed Off, we have gained many new supporters.
Having recently been placed 2nd, in the Regional Qualifying contest for the National Brass Band Championships (together with the prize for the ‘Best Bass Section’), September sees us heading to the Finals, in Cheltenham!
We strive to entertain with high quality music making, whilst operating as a very family orientated and social band of players.
