We now have a Facebook page, so please check it out and find out what's going on. We'll be sharing lots of information about all our concerts on Facebook so whether you choose to follow us via our website or on social media, you can be sure to be kept in touch with all our events.


Recently, we have been rehearsing all manner of musicals, as we're planning to hold a smaller concert in a local retirement home in April. This will be a new format of concert for us than we normally arrange - it's a bit shorter, with no interval  - so  lots of music!

Saturday 9th July 2022 -  

Again, another fabulous, magical evening playing in the grounds of Hollowforth Hall near Preston. Supporting Preston  Rotary club and local charities, the band played a mixture of pieces, supported by a stunning singer and a bagpiper to add to the occasion.


This event was a sell-out, with everyone bringing a gazebo or pinic rug, and food and drink, and of course, helping out some very good causes at the same time.


As always, the evening finished in true 'Last Night of the Proms' style with 'Jerusalem' and many other favourites before closing with a spectacular firewords display. Wow!

Sunday 26th June  2022 - 

Thanks to everyone who joined us for an afternoon of music at Happy Mount Park in Morecambe. This is a regular event for the band, but the first one for a couple of years.


With the weather being changeable, we played in the cafe within the park. Everyone had a great time listening to songs from TV, films and musicals and a few quirky pieces from the jazz world!

Our thoughts go out to all the people of Ukraine

In our first March rehearsal, we all agreed it would be fitting to start by playing and recording the Ukraine National Anthem. 

We're happy to announce that we will be back playing concerts in 2022.  For details of our confirmed bookings, please look at the 'Forthcoming events' section of our website.


So far we've been having a great time playing a wide range of music including:


  • 80s disco favourites
  • Pop and rock (including: Michael Jackson, Elton John, Roxette, Queen, Van Halen, Bon Jovi)
  • TV themes (including The Simpsons!, Hawaii 5-0)
  • Blues
  • Jazz rock
  • Classical - William Tell Overture (not easy, but what a great piece!)
  • Classical - Scherzo and Finale from Beethoven's Fifth Symphony
  • Classical - Music for the Royal Fireworks (Overture, Handel)
