Jeff Cox

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of one our founder members, Jeff Cox who lost his battle with cancer on 21 April. The band will be holding a memorial concert in Rowhedge on 28 June 2011 at 7.45pm (Rowhedge Village Hall).

Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time.

Rowhedge Village Hall Silver Jubilee

The Essex Concert Band is extremely happy to help the Rowhedge Village Hall celebrate its Silver Jubilee, having been privileged to have it as its home for most of that time. We would certainly like to take this opportunity to express our thanks to the East Donyland Community Association for continuing to provide such an invaluable facility for the Essex Concert Band and to wish the Association continuing success for the future.

We have given a “Last Night of the Proms” concert around this time of year for some 17(?) years and thought we should include the traditional finale again this year (9 October) despite the slightly different slant for the rest of the programme.

For more about the concert, see our performances page.
