We are keen to support our local communities. In particular we have played at many schools where youngsters have enjoyed seeing live music performed before their very eyes, sometimes for the very first time. Making it fun is an ideal way to encourage new musicians to learn which is so important for the future.  Below are some pictures to give an idea of our work so just contact us if you think we can add to your local event. We will tailor our repertoire to suit your particular needs.

One of our Christmas 2019 concerts


After saying a sad farewell to Ola we are now under the guidance of our new Musical Director, John Chapman. 
Here we are giving a Lunch Time Concert in St John's Church and look forward to a number of concerts over Christmas. 
The more people hear us play the more we are asked to play.


We were delighted to be joined by our new President, Lady Anne Dodd


Performing in Knotty Ash for Ken Dodd's Diddy Men and the local community


A summer performance at a Care Home on the Wirral


Sir Ken Dodd was our Patron 
so it was a real honour to play at his funeral. 

We were positioned at the door of the Cathedral and his cortege arrived early so we played a complete set before the service. After the service we moved to where all would pass by and played his favourite tunes (particularly Happiness) which pleased the crowds. 

A sad but memorable day for the band.

We have since received a delightful letter of thanks from Anne, his widow who has also made a very generous donation to the band. It really touched us that she made time at this sad moment to think of others.
