About


Consisting of ex-regular and current serving musicians from the military, The Rifles travel throughout the United Kingdom (and are also able to travel abroad) performing for a variety of events from County Shows, Arena Events, Promotional Events, Street Parades, Special Events (such as St. Georges Day) Pass Out Parades, Town Parades to the traditional Cabaret Marching Display (after-dinner marching display indoors or out).

If you’re looking for something slightly unusual to entertain your guests after dinner, why not try a Cabaret Marching display?

As a traditional military band, The Rifles can perform on a small dance floor wowing your clients / guests with a traditional marching band display. Along with the traditional display the band forms up for a finale that includes soloists, static music performances and can also provide “sing-alongs” for special events / days. The display then culminates with the traditional asking permission to march off (if applicable), then the march-off.

Whether performing on Traditional Fanfare Trumpets to give a military look, as medieval trumpeters (in costume and on natural trumpets) or in White Tie and Tails or in any other costume to blend in with your theme, we can add that triumphal sound to any event.

The Rifles were absolutely fantastic. We provided the children with the opportunity to listen to them play as well as explaining to them about the music they were playing. They took on board what we were looking for and certainly delivered. The children and staff loved it.

The Rifles were flexible, incredibly approachable and able to present us with a bespoke package. They really added something special to our wedding day and made the sun shine! The performance was first class and enjoyed by all.
