The band meet weekly for tuition and practice and there is no restriction on age or sex as long as younger children are accompanied by an adult. Instruments and unforms are supplied free to members. The band has a range of both button and piano accordions to suit all ages and abilities as well as percussion instruments. Tuition is provided for complete beginners.
We undertake parades with the Orange and Black Orders and also many youth and community organisations including BB, GB, Scouts, NI Super Cup (Coleraine), Donaghadee Santa Night, Portaferry Gala, Ardglass Festival. We also perform a few concerts and have played recently for Belfast City Council “Music In The Parks” summer programme and also for Donaghadee Summer Festival.
The band are members of the North of Ireland Bands Association and have competed in the Championships and won the Grade 4 section in 2018.
