I went to a wedding recently where the Wantage Silver Band were playing. They played a wide variety of tunes from the traditional through to the contemporary, with a few musical numbers in between. They were fantastic and really added to the general atmosphere and my personal enjoyment of the day. I would thoroughly recommend hiring them for your next event! Kate, Oxford
Just a quick note to thank the B Band for entertaining us so well at the Chieveley Village Fete. They played really well and it was lovely to see them as they entertained everyone, it really made the afternoon special. We had a record number of people through the gate and we were most fortunate as the sun shone all afternoon.Please would you pass on our heartfelt thanks to everyone in the band they did a fantastic job.Many thanks again.
Dear Mark I just wanted to write and thank you for all your help in organising the band and singers for our daughter, Jennifer’s wedding last Saturday. I know she was disappointed that you were not able to do it yourself but the Wantage Big Band and the singers were fantastic. Lots of people have said how much they enjoyed the day and the Band were a huge part of making it such a success.Please would you pass on our grateful thanks for them stepping in and providing us with a wonderful performance.
We have a wide repertoire, ranging from traditional marches and arrangements of classical music to popular and film music. If you have specific requirements for pieces of music, we are often able to fulfil them.
For something different can we suggest our fabulous:
This amazing swing band plays items from Count Basie, Glenn Miller and Duke Ellington to name only a few. The programme can be tailored to suit individual requirements ranging from weddings, outdoor festivals, corporate events and parties of all descriptions, where the band can play a selection of hits from the 20’s to the 80’s. As well as performing as an 18 piece, the band also play as a smaller combo.
Wantage Silver Band has been making music in Wantage, Oxfordshire and beyond since 1972.
Our Wantage Band is in the prestigious Championship Section and in October 2016 will compete at the Royal Albert Hall at the Nationals, their second visit in 2 years.
