Simply Versatile

Simply Versatile, Cantium Brass Band's Ten Piece Brass Ensemble based in Canterbury KentSimply Versatile are the South East of England's Premier 10 Piece Brass Ensemble. Based near the city of Canterbury, the group has gained an enviable reputation for providing quality entertainment all over the Country.


Our 10 Piece Brass Ensemble is traditionally a British Phenomenon and was originally conceived by the James Shepherd Versatile Brass Ensemble (J.S.V.B). The group consists of nine brass players and one kit drumer featuring 4 Cornets, Tenor Horn, Tenor & Bass Trombone, Euphonium, Tuba & Drum Kit.


Simply Versatile, founded in 1992 by husband and wife team John & Bridge Goold, are a group of highly talented musicians, who consistently produce music to a very high standard bringing innovation and expertise to the world of brass music. With this in mind, we can offer outstanding value for money to Concert Promoters.


If the full size Brass Band is just too big for your venue or event, Simply Versatile would be the ideal compromise. The ensemble can provide different styles to suit almost any event, performing the Classics to the latest Hollywood Blockbuster, or West End shows to the latest pops songs, thus providing the ideal perfect musical accompaniment for your event.
