App addition boosts demand for Wobplay

There has been a significant uptake for brass band music on demand following the release of the new free wobplay.com app.

  Wobplay can now be accessed through an app on your mobile phone

The successful coverage of the recent European Brass Band Championships in Malmo allied to the launch of new additions to its growing library of CD releases and historic recordings has boosted the take -up of the new WobPlay.com app.

Free App

The free app is now available for iOS at the Apple app store and soon to go on Google Play for android devices.

You will need to subscribe at wobplay.com via your web browser before logging into the app to enjoy the best of brass, which enables you to stream hundreds of hours of audio and video in one place, including never-seen-before footage and live-streamed performances.

New additions in May include Cory's latest Cornerstone CD release, 'Variations', some great old YBS recordings from the David King era such as 'Kings of Europe', 'Bourgeois in Brass' and 'Alpha and Omega' as well as the chance to relive all the performances from that memorable European Championship.
