It’s our 90th Anniversary Year

Okay, we’ll admit it – our attempts to keep this website up to date with the latest news from the band and photos of our engagements failed.

So let’s have another go.

The City of Southampton (Albion) Band is 90 years old this year and whilst there are no specific events to mark it we will be trying to make it a special year.

Later on, when I find the list, I will be updating the engagement list with the various performances already booked.  I can reveal now however that we have heard from Bournemouth that we will be on the Pinewalk Bandstand on July 25th and September 26th this year so put those dates in your diary.

Also we will be going to Portugal and hopefully in the next few weeks this website will contain all the info regarding out engagements over there.

    I remember when the Albion Band back in the late 50’s or early 60’s would play on a temporary bandstand at the Southampton Sports Centre on lovely warm summer days (Weren’t they all warm days once?) All the more interesting as my cousin Eric Day would be playing the drums and I would try and catch his eye to show off to friends that one of these ‘celebrities’ knew me – and was related to me!

    Congratulations on your 90 years!
