About Us

The band is available all year round for a range of events and can often tailor our repertoire for your requirements. We can also provide a small band if you only require a few people.  Our fees range from £150 to £300 depending on the event and is fully negotiable. Please get in touch to discuss your ideas and requirements.

We welcome anyone who wants to come along to view a rehearsal, but request that you let us know you’re coming! There are occasions when we are either out playing at an event or rehearsing elsewhere due to the hall being in use, and we wouldn’t want to miss you.
