I am pleased to bring back to Frankfort traditional Salvation Army brass music. This group has become a premier program in the Kentucky-Tennessee division of The Salvation Army, said Captain Edward Binnix, Corps Officer.

The Frankfort Corps Brass Band will perform traditional Christian brass music. Brass musicians of all ages and experiences are members of the band. Instruments played include cornet, British Alto Horn, baritone horn, flugel, and tuba.

Butch Nelson is the bandmaster of the group. Michael West, a member of the Lexington Brass, performs with the band. Brass band music has been a part of the 140-year history of The Salvation Army.

The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.
