And the Band Played On
Last night saw the Band play a concert in Downend, Bristol, in aid of Children's Hospice South West and Christ Church Missions. The programme included pieces such as The Muppets, Misty (featuring our flugel player) and David of the White Rock; the trombones got to feature in I Will Follow Him and the euphoniums got to show off their dancing skills in Another Fine Mess. The audience also called for an encore: That's A Plenty.
Another Fine Mess!
The City of Bristol Brass Band's annual outing to the Chipping Sodbury Town Hall last night was again a success with the audience. The concert included pieces featuring different instruments from around the band: Hey Jude (Lennon & McCartney) featured the horn section. The trombones finally got to play I Will Follow Him. The front row cornets played a beautiful rendition of Matt Kingston's arrangement of She Moved Through the Fair. The last section to feature were the euphoniums in their debut performance of the Laurel and Hardy duet Another Fine Mess! arranged by Sandy Smith; not only were they dressed up as the comic duo but they also managed a little choreography in the middle of the piece, too! Well done to all the players.
