About Us

The Band were originally formed in 1953 as The Newbold Toppers but after several transformations of uniform and names, in 1981, the successful and popular Chesterfield Musketeers Showband were emerged.

The Band restarted with a New Uniform, New Theme, New Members and New Ambitions.  Complimented with Woodwind Instruments the Band grew from strength to strength into what you see today.

Playing Trumpets, Saxophones, Euphoniums and Percussion Instruments the Band offers precision marching, dances and figure routines to modern and popular music on Parades and Arena Displays.

Although a traditional UK Carnival band the Band incorporates the Showband theme and offers not just the usual Parades and Arena Displays of around 15 minutes but also, Fanfares, Caberet's, Static Show and Stage Shows.

The Band have travelled around England, UK and even Europe performing for thousands of people in Jersey, Isle of Man, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, France, Germany and Spain.

Although all the members are amateurs, they Practice hard to deliver a Professional performance.

New Members  are eagerly needed. Whether you are a budding Musician, an ex Bandie or a total freshman check us out.
Everyone is welcome and Instruments, Uniform and Travel are all provided Free.
