This group is for the musicians who may want to play in our House Band and/or bands.  It's a place for us to share and learn new tunes so we can work together to play for the dancers as well as play music at various, suitable, events.  There are all ages and abilities in the band, so we welcome beginners as well as more experienced musicians. It is easy to get going with us, as playing for the cloggers involves doing tunes many times, so you can gradually get louder as you learn – we don't mind! All the tunes are on the website, just ask for help if you need it.

We will all be aiming to produce a quality set list of great tunes ;0) In this group we can share dots, tunes, ideas, videos and possibly events and venues.  If you are interested, request to join group.... enlightened
