The Stan Hacking Concert Band

The Stan Hacking Concert Band is a local band of enthusiastic amateur and semi-professional musicians. The band performs in concerts in and around Exeter, Devon.


The band was formed by Stan Hacking, an ex-Royal Marines Band Colour Sergeant. Starting with 12 musicians it has since grown to over 60 plus with ages ranging from 12 years upwards. The band contains several music teachers and requires all musicians to be at least grade 5 standard or above.


The band plays a wide variety of music including military marches, classical overtures, musicals, film themes, swing and jazz.


The band was founded to raise money for charity and over the years has raised over £320,000 for local and national charities. The band's aim is to continue to raise money for charity over the coming years.

We currently have a vacancy for a drummer / percussionist to join the band as soon as possible. We have a drumkit that is kept at our rehearsal venue, so if you do not have a drumkit or if you would find it awkward to bring your own to each rehearsal, this is not a problem! If you are interested please contact us via the contact details below.


From time to time we have vacancies on various instruments. If you are a woodwind or brass musician of at least Grade 5 standard and are interested in joining the band, please contact us via the contact details below.


If you are a charity and would like us to perform at a concert to help your charity to raise funds, please phone Jackie on 01392 465462 or email us at info@stanhackingconcertband.co.uk
