You want to join a band or orchestra music ensemble in Bexhill - Cooden - Little Common - Battle?

Are you seeking to join a band, wind orchestra or music ensemble in Bexhill, Cooden, Little Common or Battle?

Introducing the Cooden Supper Wacky band - Cooden Beach Wind Orchestra par excellence. We are a friendly informal group of 30 players who rehearse on Thursday evenings from 8.30pm in the hall at the Cooden Beach Tennis Club on Withyham Road near the railway station. After a fast paced but fun practise we gather in the excellent Club Bar which is a good informal social opportunity to meet your fellow musicians and talk music (etc)!

All standards of play welcome: we simply ask that you feel comfortable sight reading new scores or just having a go. We play a wide range of music from pop to musical themes - something for everyone and requests are always welcome! We welcome new players! We have a relaxed informal style and enjoy music making in a serene atmosphere ;)

If you are seeking to join a band, wind orchestra or music ensemble in Bexhill, Cooden, Little Common or Battle then we hope you will consider us. Simply arrive at our rehearsal room on any Thursday evening, or contact Paul Higgins for more information and exact location details if you prefer. There's also a map at or search for Cooden Tennis Club on Google maps.

At present, during 2011, we are practising a new repertoire of music with one new piece being introduced each week in order to expand our potential for performance. We can offer both full ensemble and various smaller groups from trios to octet arrangements for a tasteful balance of harmony! We know you'll fall in love with our groovy sounds! Why not join us one evening and listen in?

We are looking forward to a number of Friends & Family evenings of food, drink and a relaxed informal atmosphere; we are booked for the Bexhill Festival of Music in June, and we are also booked for Robertsbridge beer & music festival in mid July. We enjoy playing in Markwick Terrace Gardens in St Leonards on Sea and we love to play for charity dinner parties too! Good company and great music from the hottest two step band in Cooden!
