We have had a very successful summer to date, with concerts at Camborne Conservative Club, St Aubyn Arms, Victoria Gardens, Camborne Show, St Ives and Perranporth. 

Audiences are enjoying this year’s repertoire which features several new pieces for the band.  The crowd-pleaser has definitely been our rendition of the “Birdie Song”!  This was particularly well-received at St Ives where a harbourful of holiday-makers danced along to it.  A couple of visitors who play in bands back home enjoyed it so much that they turned up at our next band practice.

We have some more engagements around the county in August and September, so do look out for us.
