Music With Friendship - Not just a motto

Our motto is not just a collection of words, it was formed by all that the band does. We are a community band of over 45 musicians from various backgrounds, ages and abilities which participates at over 40 events on the Island and the Mainland each year including carnivals, fetes, bandstands, concerts and private events.
On this website you will be able to find out more about us, where we are appearing and even how to get involved.
