The Band of The Island of Jersey
Monday 24th June – Town March – 7.30pm
The Band was originally formed in 1876 under the name of La Societe de L’Avenir which later became L’Union Musicale. Sometime after the Second World War the Band was renamed to its present title “The Band of the Island of Jersey”. The Band differs from the tradition of Brass Bands in that they have a Corps of Drums, members of which, over the years have received training by HM Royal Marines, a relationship which has been nurtured by the Band executive for many years. Many young players have left the Island Band during its existence to serve in Her Majesties Forces as musicians and have returned to the Band to play a key role in its development.
