The Brass Band of Huntsville was founded by Paul Zubrod in 2001, and has entertained audiences throughout Huntsville and the Tennessee Valley with a wide variety of music, including classical, pops, jazz, seasonal, and contest pieces. The BBoH has also participated in the North American Brass Band Association (NABBA) competition, winning the Open division in 2009 and placing 2nd in the second division in 2013. We are currently preparing to return to NABBA competition in 2020, with our sights set on winning the second division championship.
