About the Band

Since 1946, the Greater Kensington String Band has been a totally volunteer organization that participates in the world famous Mummers Parade on New Year's Day in Philadelphia, PA.

Greater Kensington brings the color, excitement and musical celebration of the Mummers Parade to you any time of the year.  With two first prize finishes under its belt, we have a performance for every occasion.  We've played wedding receptions, private dinner parties and national conventions.  If there is an event that needs sparkle and sizzle, we can help you make it happen. Call us today for more information at 215-624-9404
