The Trombones

Flixton's trombone section pictured before performing at Blackpool, 2017

There are 3 trombones in a brass band: 2 tenors and a bass. The bass trombone acts as a bumper end to the bass section but the player also works with the other trombones as part of the trio. The 1st trombone works as a soloist but also closely with the 2nd trombone. As a section the trombones often work with the backrow cornets, horns and baritones supporting the rhythm and balance of the band.
