Headquarters – Banda Municipal de Machico

The headquarters of the Banda Municipal de Machico was, from its foundation until about 1965, in the Town Council of Machico. Between 1965 and 1985, Banda’s headquarters became Travessa da Figueira, in the former Mercado Velho Restaurant, which was devastated by a fire in 1985, which led to this band being without thirst for some time. Between 1986 and 1988, Banda rehearsed in a room of the present Basic School of the First Cycle with Pre-School of Machico, located at Rua dos Senhor dos Milagres, nº 12, Sítio da Banda d`Além, in Machico. In this place, the band could only rehearse and teach after 6pm. Between 1988 and 1997, Banda’s headquarters were in a small room in Praça do Peixe, and between 1997 and 2008, the headquarters were on the first floor of the Old Municipal Slaughterhouse. Since 2008, the headquarters of the Banda Municipal de Machico inaugurated on 10/30/2008 is located in the Casa da Música de Machico, located at Rua Nova da Graça Nº 1, 9200-077 Machico.
