Kent Coastal Concert Band was formed in 1991 and we are now in our 27th year! We have been based in Herne Bay for our entire history and are Herne Bay’s premiere band.
We are a friendly band of 50 members that performs throughout the year at various venues around the Kent Coast. Although the nucleus of the band originates from the Herne Bay, Whitstable and Thanet areas, many of our members travel from further afield. We are proud to have musicians of all ages, from school children to retired people.
The band aims to perform concerts of a high standard and is regarded as one of the most successful and able bands in the area. Playing a varied repertoire, we offer a musical programme to suit the tastes of a wide audience.
We perform regular concerts at venues all over the county, including bandstands, festivals and charity events. Our annual Christmas Concert is our biggest and most successful event which is held at the Kings Hall, Herne Bay, where several hundred members of the public are entertained each year.
A fun-filled family atmosphere is our aim at KCCB, so if you fancy being part of our story then do contact us - we look forward to hearing from you!
We always have places for new players
In 2009, we re-launched the MAKCARI’S Brand with the bold acquisition of “THE BANDSTAND” on Herne Bay sea front. This is our upmarket cafe where visitors can enjoy live entertainment throughout the week and every weekend during the summer months.
New this year was the introduction of a Winter Market & Santa’s Grotto throughout December.
The “Bandstand” has become a very popular local attraction for tourists & locals alike, not only for the good entertainment but also for the high quality freshly made food and coffee. Not forgetting that it is here where we have our open-plan Gelato Kitchen where our specially trained chefs make the famous MAKCARI’S Gelato for ALL the MAKCARI’S Parlours.
Please note the opening hours shown are for the summer season, the bandstand will close earlier in the winter.
Whilst every effort goes into ensuring this gig listing is accurate and up to date, always check with the venue before you travel.
