The Greater Manchester Police band is managed by Barry Frost. A band member for almost 20 years, Barry took over the management of the band on his retirement from Greater Manchester Police in April 2012.

Barry plays the Soprano, Alto, and Tenor saxophones with the Symphonic Band, Big Band, Saxophone Quartet and our Jazz Ensemble. He's responsible for organising the band's busy schedule and coordinating the volunteers, to make sure we have enough musicians for all the performances we're asked to attend.

He also runs the Big Band, which Barry is very passionate about. His many responsibilities include choosing arrangements, running rehearsals and deciding the set lists.
