Musicians from the Australian Army Band Adelaide will be performing across the region this weekend and next week in a series of drought relief concerts.

The tour follows a similar initiative in April this year where the army band visited the Mid North to headline a night of music in Robertstown and a variety of performances at schools and community venues.

The band will be visiting Cowell and Cleve for several free performances with the aim of using music to boost morale in regions across the state that have battled difficult conditions in recent years.

The tour will begin at the Cleve Hotel on Sunday, July 7.

The band will then perform at the Cleve Golf Club on July 8 from 6pm to 7.30pm before heading to the Cleve Hostel on July 9 to perform for patients, residents, staff and families.

The band then heads to Cowell for a series of events.

The Commercial Hotel will play host to the visitors on Wednesday July 10 from 7pm to 9pm.

On the afternoon of July 12, the band will play at the Cowell Insitute from 2pm to 3pm before playing at the Cowell Football Club in the evening from 7pm to 9pm.

The band will also visit both the Cleve Hostel and the Cowell District Hospital to perform for patients, residents, staff and families as well as providing assistance on community projects.

While touring the region, band members will also be assisting the community where they can.

Members will be providing assistance with projects at the Cleve Sporting Complex and the Cowell Netball and Tennis Club.
