The Future

After 60 years of performing the Band are still going strong and looking for new adventures and Challenges. 2013 saw the Bands first performance in Scotland.

We are always looking to further our CV with ambitious ideas and 2014 lead the Band to new fields in Euro Disney Paris.

 

Also in 2014 we helped bring back the famous Chesterfield Carnival in its Original format back on Stand Road Park

Despite the fall of the famous C.B.S.L. and C.B.A. Organisation's and the demise of such great Bands like the Serenaders, the Musketeers have continued.

Nevertheless we are now actively searching for new blood, new families and new members, to carry us forward.

 

Anyone interested, young or old, past or present, can see the Band in action at any of the venues mentioned in the Diary or Call

The Chesterfield Musketeers pride themselves on looking for new challengers. This was the reason for participating in the I.O.M. World Championships the Spanish Classics and not to mention France and Germany. With the acquisition of the new sound equipment the next challenge is already underway, this being our full Stage and Cabaret shows. Since the seventies the band have given successful stage shows to full houses around Europe so the basis has always been there. Already by making use of the top of the range Yamaha Midi Keyboard the band enjoy playing along to most of their own arrangements, which are all orchestrated on the Computer and arranged to suit their abilities by :

The introduction of hand held and headband Beyer radio microphones has helped progress the numerous singers within the ranks. Our range of singers stretches from Celine Dion, Mowtown to Al Jolson and Nat King Cole with a little Frank Sinatra and Boyzone thrown in for good measure. With the use of Cordless Mics we are able to perform choreographed dance routines to add a spark of Take That. This we hope to include in future engagements with our Cabaret. This year we are in training for a weeks entertainment participating in not only the Two Main Parades in Jersey with the Battle of the Flowers but extra carnival events during the week. Further a field we are looking in the future to extending our overseas travels. Places of interest which have been forthcoming are Holland, Belgium and Toulouse in France. Hopefully we will be able to update this information here first on the Website. Of course we still have ambitions on the Carnival scene throughout the UK, so lets be having your enquiries, we still have dates available.
