The name given to a concert company or glee club active in South Africa in the late 1860s, as an activity of the 99th Regiment (also known as the 99th Lanarkshire Regiment) which hosted both the Lanarkshire Dramatic Club and the Lanarkshire Glee Club).

The company performed concerts in the Garrison Theatre, Cape Town, on 15 July and 25 August of 1868, but thereafter they appear to have been replaced by the more popular companies of minstrels.
