Bandamarama is a community street band, specialising in procession, parade and walkabout performance. The band is a mix of brass, wind, percussion, strings, and voice, and is directed and managed by Charles Huckvale and Phil Codd.


The band was formed after a training day with Mr Wilson"s Second Liners in May 2015.


Bandanarama play a livley mash-up of Disco hits, New Orleans funeral music, Indie classics and Cockney um-pa, guaranteed to get your toes tapping!

The band have developed a 'look' that resembles a hairy, sweaty, greasy mob of bikers and rock gods who love to strut their stuff through any crowd.


Bandanarama is open to any musician who;

  • Plays brass, wind, strings or percussion and has their own instrument.

  • Can play at least to a basic/intermediate level.

  • Is free to attend rehearsals in Hull on Thursday evenings twice a month.

  • Is prepared to dress up and dance, and isn't afraid of having a bit of fun.
