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.

How are the new year’s resolutions going?
Posted:2019-02-04

If you promised yourself you’d take up a new hobby in 2019 then why not come along to a practice night and see what we’re all about?

We practice at Summerfields Primary School, Atkinson Drive, Newport every Tuesday evening from 7pm until 9:30pm and every Friday evening from 6:30pm until 8pm. 

So if you play a musical instrument or would like to learn to play one then pop along and say hello. We’d love to see you!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
