Join the Band

The Band is always pleased to hear from people who are interested in joining the band, or who would be prepared to join us on an occasional basis when our regular players are unavailable. Although we may not have a vacancy immediately, we will keep your details on file, and contact you when any opportunities arise. Please email us at

Band administration

The Band meets regularly on a Tuesday evening from 7:45pm to 10:00pm in the village of Hartlebury near Stourport. There is a 20 per quarter charge for all regular members of the group, to cover the band's running costs, such as the hire of the rehearsal room, purchase of music etc.

People who play with the band at gigs can expect a small payment to cover the cost of travel to the gig, and regular members of the band who are available for most gigs can reasonably expect these payments to also cover the quarterly subs charge.

For new members we normally would expect a three or four rehearsal trial period, to allow you to decide whether you want to join us, and for us to ensure that you are of an appropriate musical standard.

The band has a friendly, informal and relaxed feel, and rehearsals are as important to us as gigs. This is something we do for fun, and hopefully that comes across to the audiences we play for.
