The Holy Family band without doubt stands out as the number one backing band in the country.

The band has never relented in its exertions to improve the technical capacity of Gambian artistes, whilst engaging in other commercial activities.

The band has successfully made its way to the top echelon of Gambian music thus enjoying a wonderful reputation.

Preparations are currently on high gear for its fifteenth-year celebration, in partnership with the Independence Stadium Staff Association. 

The band manager, Abdoulie Leigh, believes it is a landmark event and the public should expect a spectacle.

“We are celebrating fifteen years of hard work, commitment, and dedication in music this coming Saturday 20 May, at the Independence Stadium Friendship Hotel.

“It is going to be a spectacle and we are urging the general public to come and support us,” he said.

Meanwhile, the management of the band and the Independence Stadium are at an advanced stage of negotiations for staging a weekly event at the friendship hotel.
