This week we are preparing for our annual inspection in Portsmouth at the Royal Navy Volunteer Band Festival on Saturday. We will be assessed by the hierarchy of the Royal Marines Band Service whilst performing a marching display and a concert segment to the public. Wish us luck!
We performed a concert on our home ground to the local community in the Fleet Air Arm Church. The programme included an eclectic mix of genres and the audience thoroughly enjoyed themselves. It was a great opportunity to perform a live concert before we head down to Portsmouth this weekend to take part in the Royal Navy Volunteer Band Festival where we go head-to-head against the other Royal Navy bands in a competition. We're looking forward to performing in the church again
We helped celebrate Armed Forces Day by providing musical entertainment to the slightly damp crowds in Wincanton. Thank you to the RBL branch of Wincanton for inviting us to perform and we look forward to performing for you again next year.
On an incredibly warm summers' evening we were privileged to lead the Dorchester Carnival through the town. There were many spectators and it gave our Bandmaster the opportunity to debut on the Bass Drum!
