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.

Thanks to Southern Vectis for their continued support with coach transport. For coach hire contact

Just because the summer’s over, doesn’t mean we stop playing until next year!

We’ll be playing at St Johns Church Harvest Fair in Newport on Saturday 8th September at 11 am and on Saturday 22nd September, we’ll be taking part in the Isle of Wight Parade in Cowes.

Come along and give us a listen!

Had a chance to see us yet?

If not, don’t fret! You’ve got plenty more opportunities to watch us in the coming weeks.

If you’re looking to wile away a few hours tomorrow afternoon (19th August) then come and listen to our concert at Rylstone Gardens Bandstand, Shanklin which starts at 3pm. For the small price of a deckchair you can hear us play a wide variety of music including traditional marches and film themes.
