Band Vacancies

Are you after a new challenge or a player who has recently relocated to the Stockport area? If so, please get in touch and come to one of our rehearsals.

We welcome keen and accomplished players to join a friendly band with a good, manageable balance of concerts and contests. We are interested in genuine, enthusiastic bandsmen and women who are dedicated to music and with a true passion for playing.

Rehearsals are held twice a week (Tuesdays and Fridays, from 8:00 – 10:00 pm) at our own purpose-built band room in Marple. They are industrious, but lots of fun. We can provide an instrument or you can use your own.

Become part of a friendly, affable team with plenty of post-finale socialising opportunities!

If you are interested in joining a dynamic and fun band, you can see our current vacancies on our Band Members page or contact the Band Secretary for more details.
