Andrew Grady is originally from Yorkshire but has been living locally for over 25 years.

He is currently the secretary of Borehamwood Brass Band, and is also involved with different musical groups and organisations throughout the county.

Andrew performs as a soloist for major town functions. For the last few years, he has played the last Post & Reveille on Remembrance Sunday. 

Andrew is involved with the Borehamwood & Elstree Twin Town Association, which organise visits to and from both of Elstree & Borehamwood’s twin towns, Fontenay aux Roses near Paris, and Offenburg, in South West Germany.

He championed the idea of a bandstand for the town. This idea was taken up by the club while he continues to collaborate with Hertsmere Borough Council.

He also offers technical support for audio systems and presentations for events organised within Borehamwood.
