Service bands

Service bands

The Service bands are made up of the Concert Band and the Corps of Drums. They formed in 1984 and have been representing the Service through music, marching and displays ever since.

Musicians include retired firefighters and support staff, as well as talented residents of Devon and Somerset with a background in music. 

Here you’ll find more information, including a brief background, the types of events they attend, how you can join, and how to book them.
