The band is not required to attend on Saturday 7th, which is when Mike and Dave will be setting up the equipment. Please put the above dates in your diaries.

New Website

Our new website will be going live on Thursday 12th July (all being well) – it will simply just appear in place of the existing one. The website address is unchanged. The ‘band only’ section is at the foot of the Home page – just click on the link and enter the new password (sent to members by email). The new website should display properly on mobile phones.

Feedback

“Just a note to say a huge ‘thank you’ to all of you in the Band for the great event on Sunday. We thought that the Band was on absolutely ‘top form’ and excelled in all aspects of the music.” 

Email from the organiser of the Kingsbury Episcopi Methodist Church carol concert held on Sunday 16th Dec 2018

“I just wanted to officially thank you all for the wonderful performance you put on for our Street Fair. It isn’t official yet but I believe this was our best year ever for fund raising. Thank you for being a part of that. I say it every year and every year I mean it, when I say Drayton Street Fair wouldn’t be the same without you. It’s the music that lends the day its particular vibrance, I believe.I hope you all enjoyed yourself and that we’ll see you again next year.”

Email from organiser, Louise Lee, following our performance on Saturday 1st Sep 2018

“Dear band members, I just wanted to say a big Thank you to you all for your wonderful performance yesterday at Vivary Park!  It was wonderful to spend 2 hours relaxing in the sunshine and being transported back to the ‘good old days’ with such an eclectic mix of great music! Keep up the good work and know that your hard work is touching people’s lives in ways you cannot imagine.”
