The Royal Newfoundland Regiment Band provides support for Military and Official Government functions throughout the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador. The Band has also represented Canada at official ceremonies in Europe, including Vimy Ridge and Beaumont Hamel in France in 1997, and Mons in Belgium in 1998 where they recreated the Canadian Victory Parade through Mons on 11 November 1918.

The Church Lads’ Brigade (C.L.B.) was founded in 1891 in London, England. Through the efforts of a young Newfoundlander, Harold Blackler, a C.L.B. Company was started in St. John’s in 1892 – the first C.L.B. overseas unit. Today, the C.L.B. in NL has 14 Companies, 1 Army Cadet Corps, and 1 Navy League Corps spread across the Avalon Peninsula, from St. John’s to New Harbour, and one Company on the Bonavista Peninsula in Trinity East/Port Rexton; in total over 500 members strong!

The C.L.B. Regimental Band has been an integral part of Newfoundland’s musical heritage for more than 120 years. Their membership comes from a wide range of backgrounds and ages that extend from young musicians, not long out of high-school, performing alongside members who have served in excess of seventy years. Today’s band is more than a marching band. It has evolved from its early days as a tin whistle band into a multi-faceted ensemble that is completely volunteer in nature, yet very much professional in attitude.
