Bringing together the over 55’s to learn new and improve existing music making skills, the project is designed to help overcome loneliness and social isolation within the community.  Commencing in late 2019, the project continues to provide anyone in the area of Northwich, Cheshire the chance to meet and learn to play a brass instrument.  World class tutors get together with the group every Thursday to help the members improve their skills and music making experience. 

In October 2019 at Northwich Memorial Hall the Foden’s Band played in concert together with the UK’s number one big band singer, Matt Ford, in an evening titled ‘A Salute to Sinatra and the Swing Legends’, this event introduced the ‘Creating a Buzz!’ project to the local community.  Since then the project members have met regularly to learn new skills.  December 2019 saw the group have the opportunity to make their first live performance in a ‘Memories of Christmas’ concert where they also had the opportunity to take the stage with the Foden’s Band.  It is hoped that more performances are to come as the ladies and gents continue to progress through their weekly sessions.
