The Derby Midshipmen Band were formed in 1935 and are one of the most successful and professional marching bands in the UK. The “Middies” as they are also known entertain the public in County Shows, Main Arena Events, Carnivals and Parades providing intricate music and marching displays which are changed each year. During the years the band has won almost every major trophy at numerous contests and championships aroound the UK. Since 1990 the Derby Midshipmen Band have entered over 100 contests and have never been out of the top three places having obtained 83% of these in first place. The band currently have 21 consecutive 1st place wins spanning back from 2004 to current day. This record has earned them the reputation of being one of the most successful and professional marching bands in the UK. The band’s uniform is based on the style of the French Naval dress of the 1800’s period. Some of the band’s most prestigious bookings include playing for Her Royal Highness the Queen at Epsom Derby Day, on the hallowed turf of Wembley Football Stadium, the London Arena and the Edinburgh Festival Cavalcade. In 2001 the band gained its status as a Registered Charity helping its work in raising money for local and national charities by performing in concerts and cabarets. The band’s arena displays are put together by their Band Master & Musical Director Peter Gibbs.
