We have now settled into our new banding routine, alternating weeks with our Stone house and Marklye groups. It's not ideal but unfortunately it's a necessary constraint of the times we are living in at the moment. I'm sure we are all looking forward to when we will all be back together. Of course there will be rivalry between the groups and we hope that when we are all together again Stone House will want to sit next to Marklye or vice versa? There may be one way, consolidate the names? Perhaps the "Eleanore musky tosh Group"?
Due to covid-19 we have been forced to close our doors until further notice. Please check back here or our Facebook page for any updates.
Every Friday is an open rehearsal when anyone is more than welcome to come along to listen or indeed think about joining.
Did you use to play many years ago? Always fancied having a go on a brass instrument? Want a hobby for your children,
or Just decided to take up a challenge?
Then why not join a friendlycommunity band.
Want a hobby for your children? Just decided to take up a challenge? We have instruments, tuition, uniforms and music, all you need is the enthusiasm to give it a go, what have you got to lose? It's all free of charge and our training band is taught by our MD who is a professional music teacher. Come along at 7pm to chat with the MD or speak to a committee member, perhaps arrange to try an instrument. 7.15pm is the training band, come and listen to how we encourage players of all ages and standards to improve and play as an ensemble. The main band is at 7.45pm, we then let the training band members sit in for the first 15 minutes to get a feel for the big band and to play alongside more experienced players. 8pm we knuckle down with some hard work, a few laughs, maybe even a few groans but most of all we have nearly two hours of music making with friends. What could be better?
