Who we are
Zodiacs are a non-profit making/self funded independent youth organisation, consisting of young people from the West Midlands.
We are a Marching Display Band that provides an interesting and healthy hobby for young people of all ages, through a structured and positive learning environment, helping to install the values of discipline, dedication, commitment and self respect which are carried into the community with a true sense of purpose and pride.
Zodiacs are registered as a Local Authority approved youth group and are members of the UKFJB (United Kingdom Federation of Jazz Bands) in whose approved national contests we compete, gaining recognition for our performances. We provide entertainment for the general public through shows, performances, concerts and competitions.
Each year the staff design and co-ordinate a musically and visually sophisticated programme fitted to the talent levels of our members. Throughout the winter, fundamentals of music and marching are taught and our members begin learning the program. By late spring the finishing touches are added and it is time to take the show on the road. Throughout the summer we perfect and fine tune the show right through to the World Champioships in August!
