Zash Brazell

Zash is a long standing and much valued member of Reading All Steel Percussion Orchestra. He has been a passionately committed musician playing bass pans, guitar pans, drums and percussion with RASPO since 2002.

Following his business studies internship and work experience with CultureMix Zash joined the team as a music tutor in schools.

He became a key member of the RASPO function ensemble and was the orchestra captain for a year in September 2009 coordinating schedules and logistics for the orchestra performances.

He studied Music at Thames Valley University learning about careers in music, performance, music theory, social studies, and light and sound.

Zash has taken part in three National Panorama Championships; as a bass player with Mangrove in 2007, playing double guitars with RASPO in 2010 returning to bass pans for 2011. He is featured on both RASPO CD albums and joins RASPO for the annual summer steel band performance in the Notting Hill Carnival procession.

'The college course was very helpful running alongside my work with RASPO. I can apply the knowledge from my course to band rehearsals and vice versa.'
