Taking port with the Band

Quick one please - At what stage of a Regimental Dinner, or Ladies Dinner night come to that, does the RSM take port with the band master. Is it before or after the toasts?
After and I thought during the ladies comfort break? but before the run for the piss corner
Having played for many mess functions the normal protocol is that the bandmaster will normally leave the band in the hands of the principle player to join the RSM for the toasts at the same time as the rest of the mess.

If I am a lone player then a glass is normally left for me to take once my duties have been completed.

Why do you not ask the bandmaster in question as to his protocol?
