Melingriffith 1

Our first band, “M1”, is under the direction of Dewi Griffiths and Nigel Seaman. M1 had a vert successful year in 2016 and is continuing its success through to 2017. Much has been said about the competition prowess of M1, but it should not be overlooked that we are a community-based organisation and are just as much at home on the concert stage as in the contest arena. The band can regularly be heard performing concerts for local charities or playing at weddings, church services, and summer bandstands. Wherever we are playing, we shall always be delighted to see you and we thank you for your support.
