They travel from a wide geographical area including Fishguard, Cardigan and Llanelli and their commitment is demonstrated by the fact that they travel to rehearsals every Sunday evening ... As a community based band they play for their own enjoyment but they also thrive on challenges of performing at more formal concerts and events.
