For the last 150 years, St. John’s Brass and Reed Band has brought people together in the spirit of music and community in Limerick and its environs.

Play with us!

We are currently recruiting new members to join our fun and friendly band. Whether you are a seasoned player, have an instrument sitting in the attic waiting to be dusted off after many years, or would like to learn and join a musical group, we would love to hear from you! We warmly welcome anyone, regardless of age, social, racial or religious circumstances. All you need is a love of music.

By being part of St. John’s Brass and Reed Band, you will be able to forge new friendships, be part of a team and a community of music-lovers, have the opportunity to take subsidised music lessons to carry on with your musical education, have access to our instrument bank, and help to spread the joy of music and how much it has to offer.
