About Us

On 14th January 2010, 18 enthusiastic players braved the snow to attend our very first rehearsal. Now in our tenth year, we have some 60 committed members with both professional and amateur musicians sitting side by side and giving their time freely for the love of making music.


Our first nine years have seen 159 public performances in a wide variety of venues and with repeat performance requests coming in, 2019 is proving to be another busy year.


The band primarily performs well known music ranging from, standard swing tunes, stage and screen and popular hits from the 20th century. Our aim is very much to entertain our audiences whilst providing harmonious and sometimes challenging music for our players.


We are very fortunate to have such a large number of talented musicians but we still have a limited number of vacancies.  If you are at least grade 6, and interested in joining us, then please do give either Julia or Andy a ring on the number below or email us.


As a band we have a good mix of people, friendly and with a shared love of music and performing. We are happy to perform formal concerts, fetes, garden parties, proms, festivals etc. throughout the area — please contact us with your specific requirements.
