Leave a group aboard (7)


I believe the answer is:


'leave' is the definition.
(to abandon is to leave or desert)

'a group aboard' is the wordplay.
'group' becomes 'band' (band can mean a group of people).
'aboard' becomes 'on'.

(Other definitions for abandon that I've seen before include "Maroon" , "Desert, strand" , "a complete lack of restraint" , "Desert; intemperance" , "scrap" .)
