Welcome to Second Wind. We are a friendly concert band of wind and brass musicians from Sevenoaks and the surrounding areas of Kent and Sussex. We play a wide variety of music to suit all tastes and perform in concert venues and in the open air throughout the south east of England.
Click the tabs above to find out all about us.

Concert bands can be compared to military bands, which have most of the brass intruments (trumpets etc) found in brass bands but with the addition of woodwind and reed instruments such as flutes, clarinets, bassoons and saxophones, plus drums and timpani. In Second Wind we are always keen to hear from players looking for a band to join, so please take time to browse these pages where you will find all the information you need.

The Vine

Just north of Sevenoaks town centre is an area of ground which was once a vineyard for the Archbishops of Canterbury and is now the home of the Vine Cricket Club. It is one of the most pleasant and historic grounds in the country, encompassing the "seven oaks" from which the town gets its name, and includes an adjacent park and bandstand on which Second Wind and many other bands give summer concerts.
We get together most weeks of the year under the baton of our music director Martin Forward, to rehearse and prepare for concerts and just to enjoy playing music in the great variety of styles available to Concert bands such as ours.
