‘We are a thriving, friendly, amateur community orchestra whose players come from all walks of life and who have a wide-range of musical experience. We have a nucleus of experienced players, but we are always keen to welcome new players, of all ages and abilities, who would like to join us to make music. We emphasise the fun and enjoyment of making music, and so do not require minimum grade levels or auditions for new members. Enthusiasm is the prime qualification for entry. We rehearse weekly in term time and give several concerts a year, the proceeds of which go to local or national charities. Don't be nervous about taking that first step to joining us as we are sure that once you have played a few times you will look forward to each rehearsal and wonder why you didn't join sooner.’

‘Tuesdays are oriented towards complete beginners - up to improver level and you’ll get help and on – the – spot guidance from more experienced players with time to help you. We can lend you a ukulele each and get you started even if you have never played any musical instrument or sung before. You do not need to be able to read music at all for these sessions. Thursdays are for improvers & intermediates and are great fun but the pace is a little more brisk and geared towards rehearsing arrangements and the original aim of the band – which is to bring live music performances to the community ... We do not use any pre-recorded backing tracks, voice modulators or any other electrickery / karaoke – type stuff, we are 100% live and unplugged proper traditional style musicians. Only the bass is amplified.’

‘This band was formed during 2009 by the integration of the well established “Lincolnshire Concert Band” with Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue ... Many Fire and Rescue units are associated with band music, and in particular parts of the country the association would be with brass or silver bands. Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue for many years was indeed associated with a brass band, until that band ceased to exist – and the concept of the well established Lincolnshire Concert Band becoming associated with Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue was born. The band recognises that it is now the public representation of Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue, and although band members are volunteers from all walks of life, they wear the uniform – which is provided by Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue – with a great deal of pride.’
