About Us

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, 


supportive environment. 


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!
