About the band

The Kamloops Big Band was formed in 1969. Over the years, the group slowly transitioned into what it is today. It achieved Society Status on Feb. 28th, 1990, and became a non-profit group representing Kamloops’ Big Band enthusiasts. The musicians in the KBB range from amateur, semi-professional to professional. In 2016, the Kamloops Big Band made a some changes including a new name – we are now called Beyond Brass Big Band.

We play numerous events throughout the year – Kamloops Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards, Christmas concerts at a few retirement residences, community events, weddings and each July find us at Riverside Park in Kamloops as part of the summer long Music in the Park celebration.
