In January 1933, Fred Felton called a Northants Evening Telegraph reporter to his factory to tell him: “We are going to form a band and we are going to aim high”. Two years later the Munn and Felton Works Band was champion of Great Britain – and a brass band legend was born that has lived on for over 75 years. Despite a number of name changes through the years, Virtuosi GUS Band continues to be a driving force of brass banding in the Midlands. The band is the current Midland Region champion, a title it has claimed for the last five years in a row.
