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. String bands have a unique sound. They consist only of string (banjos, string basses), reed (accordions, alto, tenor, baritone, and bass saxophones), and percussion (drums and bells) instruments. Greater K can bring 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.
