Doncaster Danum Scout Band (DDSB) is now widely known as The Vulcan Show Corps (VSC). The band is based in Doncaster Danum District, South Yorkshire.
The DDSB has a rich history of banding and is a member ofthe British Youth Band Association (BYBA). The band has competed in many BYBA competitions This involves the band playing and marching a pre-written and rehearsed routine, including intricate marching manoeuvres and a vast range of favourite tunes, from film themes and popular music, to Latin beats and swing classics.
In recent years the band has been more focused on training young people who have never played an instrument. Providing tutoring and mentoring on brass, woodwind and percussion. DDSB, as the Vulcan Show Corps, not only fulfils a training role but still marches parades, galas and fetes, along with playing static for the public at various venues.
We are is always recruiting new members and welcome novices and experienced musicians alike. Uniforms and instrument are provided on a loan basis. Full music and tuition are also given. All leaders are DBS checked and there is always a qualified first aider on site.
As well as providing tuition we are always happy to accept help from experienced players to tutor our beginners. Please contact us if you can help.
