Our Story

CRBB was chartered in 2012. Although amateur in status, the band features many experienced musicians from around central Indiana and is under the outstanding directorship of our artistic director, Dr. Michael Black. Donald Bookout, who was also the founder and music director of the organization, has served as past vice-president and a board member of NABBA.

The group performs a variety of music including marches, hymns, show tunes, big band arrangements, composed or arranged in the British tradition.

Crossroads Brass Band strives to become an exemplary musical organization, study and perform brass band music of the highest quality, promote educational activities, and entertain the metropolitan Indianapolis area. The band competes in NABBA activities when the opportunities arise, representing Indianapolis and central Indiana.
