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.

Happy to be supported by The WightAID Foundation


How are the new year’s resolutions going?
Posted:2020-01-05

If you promised yourself you’d take up a new hobby in 2020 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 9pm 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!

Got a quiet November?

We haven’t!

We’ll be paying our respects at Ryde and Ventnor’s Remembrance Day Parades on Sunday 10th November. Ryde’s parade will move off from outside the police station at 9:30 am and Ventnor’s will leave St Catherine’s Church at 3 pm.

We are also hosting a concert on Saturday 23rd November at Freshwater Memorial Hall, starting at 7 pm. Come along for an evening of music ranging from traditional marches to film scores with a few fun pieces thrown in too!

We’d love to see you at any of our events next month.
