Melingriffith 1

Our first band, “M1”, is under the direction of  Nigel Seaman. M1 had a successful year in 2017 and  continued its success in 2018 by qualifying for the National Finals at the Royal Albert Hall. 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.
