Music is a heavenly gift. It is one of the only gifts that transcends the barriers of language and creed. The inspirational and charismatic music of the Bahama Brass Band stirs a range of emotions from overwhelming peace and contentment to sheer bliss.
The harmonic arrangements combined in the music of the Bahama Brass Band are the culmination of many influences; the most important being our heritage and faith in Almighty God. The world famous Bahama Brass Band was organized in 1925 by four ministers of the Gospel namely; Bishop Hermis Ferguson, Bishop Alvin S. Moss, Bishop James R. Cooper, and Pastor Frank Cunningham. Today, with the combination of its Nassau and Grand Bahama segments, the membership exceeds 100.
This band plays an important role in the ministry of the Church of God of Prophecy as evidenced by its performances at local and state conventions as well as the bi-annual worldwide General Assemblies.
The late Bishop Stanley R. Ferguson, first colonial overseer prophesied that the day would come when this band would play before Kings and the Rulers of the earth. On July 10th, 1973 the prophecy was fulfilled during The Bahamas' Independence Celebrations. In attendance to witness the ministry of this band were; Prince Charles, Prince of Wales, representative for his mother Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom, Sir Roland Symonette, former premier of The Bahamas, Rt. Hon. Sir Lynden Pindling, prime minister of The Bahamas, prime ministers and government representatives of St. Lucia, Jamaica, Bermuda, St. Kitts, Grenada and thirty (30) Latin American countries.
