The Thanet Concert Band was formed in 1972 using the title Thanet Concert Military Band under the direction of Bob Driscoll. Bob retired some years later leaving a varied repertoire of his own arrangements and compositions, some of which the band still plays today.
In the years since the band has moved onwards under several musical directors and has seen many rehearsal venues.
The band is made up entirely of volunteer amateur musicians who receive no payment except the reward of doing what they enjoy most : making music.
The band plays concerts mainly in South East Kent
We practice every Thursday evening at 7:30 p.m. at Dame Janet Primary Acadamy, Ramsgate Anyone interested in joining the band will be made very welcome at rehearsals or you can contact us using the form on our contact page
