About Us

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 7:45 p.m. at Dame Janet Primary Academy, Newington Road, Ramsgate. Anyone interested in joining the band will be made very welcome at rehearsals or you can contact us here .
