|About the Mersey Band|
The Mersey Band has been a part of the musical scene in Liverpool since 1948!
Although we have a wide range of ages and skill levels in the band, we have the
common goal of making great music together and having fun!
The Band meets every Tuesday night from 7:00- 9:00 p.m. at the Milton
Community Hall in Milton. We perform at parades, concerts, services and
functions along the South shore.
Each summer we hold a week- long student and adult band camp. The Band also
runs a year -long training program for anyone interested in joining the band-
regardless of age or musical background.
We welcome anyone who would like to join! We play a variety of musical styles
and provide an opportunity for musicians to enjoy making music in a friendly,
We are a volunteer organization with no membership fees. The Mersey Band
raises money through fundraising activities, sponsorship from local service
groups and a grant from the Region of Queens. The Band supplies members with
instruments, music and uniforms. Members are required to attend rehearsals
and performances, learn music and have fun!
