The band was formed in 1971 by a small group of experienced players who taught others the various instruments needed to form a small band. It soon became very successful both in attracting players and in the contest field. The band soon went from 4th to 2nd section. Sadly we are currently in the 4th section.
We now rehearse in the St John's church hall, Bridgetown, Totnes, on Monday and Thursday evenings at 7.30pm.
We are a family-orientated band, with ages ranging over seven decades.
The band is a self financing organisation and has purchased all its own instruments and equipment over the years through engagements, collections and small grant aid from the local council.
The band is available for engagements throughout the year. You can contact us by email or telephone, with details on the 'contact us' page. Similarly, if you are interested in playing, get in touch or come to one of our rehearsals and meet us. Everyone is welcome and if you can't play - our training band will help you learn.
