Also performing will be Grimethorpe and Brighouse & Rastrick bands.
EYMS, who have been hailed as the most entertaining band in the UK, will put on a show which highlights both the lighter side of music, while not forgetting those who enjoy traditional brass band favourites.
A rousing march will be staged with classic melodies from the stage and screen.
The second half will see a change of lay-out for the EYMS big band experience, with some iconic numbers.
Concert-goers can also expect to hear several of the band's classy soloists.
It all adds up to a must-see show for the band, which formed in 1989 and quickly achieved a status which sees them today competing in the same sphere as bands with more illustrious histories.
Band highlights have been recording with The Beautiful South, performing Karl Jenkins' The Armed Man, appearing as part of Sky TV's international rugby coverage and featuring on BBC's Songs of Praise.
EYMS have been North of England champions four times since 1996 and are again aiming to compete in the National Finals at the Royal Albert Hall in October.
They hope to reach the London showpiece for the sixth time after competing at a qualifying contest.
Other notable competition highs include winning the Senior Cup in 2002 and 2008, and becoming the 2008 and 2009 Kippax Entertainment champions.
Band chairman Tony Newiss said: "We are really looking forward to again performing in New Waltham and feel we have put together a programme for all tastes.
"We hope brass band and other music fans will come out and help us celebrate a great British musical tradition."
Tickets are £8 and available from John Mathews on 01472 328825.
