Townsville Brass is the flagship of the organisation. It is currently ranked at B-Grade, and have been recent B Grade National Champions, having won the championships in Brisbane over the Easter weekend in 2014. In other years, the band have placed third (2012), second (2010, 2009, 2008) in the National Championships.
The band is under the very capable leadership of Dr Mark Smith, a very successful championship trumpet and flugelhorn player himself.
Playing with Townsville Brass is a lot of fun, and the atmosphere is very supportive and social.
Many of the players have come up through the ranks of the training band, Brolga Brass, as well as from the local schools and their brass programme.
