Welcome to The Co-operative Funeralcare Band North West Online
About the band...
The Co-operative Funeralcare Band North West is a Championship Section Brass Band, based in Crewe, Cheshire. The Band has an excellent relationship with the Co-operative Funeralcare and the sponsorship agreement with them runs until 2015. In seventy years since the Bands formation in 1942, it has had just seven Musical Directors. The current Musical Director, Jef Sparkes, took over the baton from his father in 1999.
The Co-operative Funeralcare Band North West will compete in the Grand Shield for the first time in its history in May 2013, having gained promotion at the 2012 Spring Festival Contest to compete against the top 40 Brass Bands in the UK. Rehearsal facilities are shared with the Co-operative Youth, Junior and Beginner Wind Bands, bringing on the next generation of over 130 musicians. The bands perform together in fundraising concerts twice each year.
