St Ives Concert Band have a motto – Make Music Enjoyable!
This local group of enthusiastic musicians of all ages play foot tapping swing and old favourites with a new twist.
The band was formed in 2006 by the committee of the St Ives Town Band which has been playing in the town for over 130 years and meets in the Band room off the Stennack that was built by the members in the 1920s.
The Band doesn’t take itself too seriously and welcomes new members, whether beginners or improvers, that want to enjoy playing as part of a group on any of a variety of instruments including Brass, Flutes, Clarinets, Saxophones, Electric Guitars and Percussion.
We play a variety of music heavily influenced by Swing music.
