The Prince Regent’s Band


The Prince Regent’s Band


During the mid-nineteenth century the Distin Family blazed a trail across Europe and North America performing countless concerts and promoting new and exciting designs of brass instruments. Thanks to a chance meeting with Adolphe Sax in Paris in 1844, they adopted the new valved brass instruments, and in particular the new saxhorn.

With The Celebrated Distin Family, period brass specialists The Prince Regent’s Band have recreated the lost Distin Family repertoire, performing on their unique collection of original saxhorns and other fascinating brass instruments of the period.

The Prince Regent’s Band:
- Richard Fomison
- Richard Thomas
- Anneke Scott
- Phil Dale
- Jeff Miller
