This unique gathering of performers from various countries continues to be a yearly highlight in the local calendar.

With a total band club membership of over 30,000, these form over six per cent of the total population aged 5-84 years.
The music played combines popular tunes, with the more classical and are all performed in the context of a Military March parade to provide a spectacular experience for everyone to enjoy. The music chosen appeals to all ages.
