Molde Janitsjar was founded in 1929 and celebrates its 90-year anniversary this year. This celebration is the reason they are attending the 28th European Wind Band Festival.
The band has 60 members between the ages of 17 and 70 and a special drumline formation consisting of 15 drummers for parades. Last year they played multiple concerts with well-known Norwegian singers in cities such as Oslo, Ålesund and their hometown Molde.
For many years the musicians also participated in the Norwegian championship for wind bands, but decided to take a break in 2018. Instead they want to concentrate on different kinds of concerts.
