Local Music Here is a short list of some of the areas groups & bands, for a more definitive list please visit the Andover Gig Guide. 

Since forming in 1993, The New Antonians have established themselves as a fine example of what Bigband playing is all about. The range of styles runs from the classic wartime Glenn Miller through Count Basie and Duke Ellington to Frank Sinatra in the 50s-70s and even today with Brian Setzer and Phil Collins developing modern pops in the Bigband style.

Recording Studios

This is a new recording studio for the Andover area run by local musician Louis Sellers. The studio looks very well equipped and knowing Louis's attention for detail I am sure his engineering will be excellent, it looks like local musicians and bands have an excellent facility on their doorstep

Mooncalf Recording Studio is based near Marlbourgh but the owners have long term connections in the Andover Area. Stringbrokers can wholeheartedly recommend this studio as members of the team have recorded there on numerous occasions.



Local Music Groups & Societies

The Lamb Sessions are informal gatherings of like-minded folk who simply enjoy making music together. All levels are catered for; new faces and visitors are very welcome and participation is encouraged from everyone present.


The Lamb

Folk Session

The Society was formed in April 2002 on the initiative of local resident, Terry Trevett (the current Secretary), and is the only such club in the Andover area or indeed within the Test Valley Borough. A small committee was formed and the Society's inaugural concert, featuring International Concert Organist, Nicholas Martin, was held on 18 July 2002.
