Sale Spring Concert
The band are excited about their forthcoming concert in their Sale Sports club HQ and they hope it will be the first of many. Tickets are available on the door for £5.00 and we are playing a varied and entertaining programme. The band members are working hard to generate an audience with a local leaflet drop in the area as well as promoting the concert on various social media brass band sites. Please make an effort to support us!
Glossop Band Club
The band performed at Glossop Band club on Sunday 19th March and recieved rave reviews for both their quality playing, varied programme and entertaining compering by their conductor, including an impromptu dance solo. We would also like to thank some ex players who helped us out: Neil Venables, Soo Rose Cooke, Tim Brocklehurst, Jonathon Fairman and the excellent Tom Knaggs on percussion from Haslingden and Helmshore Band. many thanks to Peter Hargreaves for taking the photograph
The band came a disappointing 10th out of 17 bands at the recent north west area contest. Playing Alan Fernie's St Andrews Variation we were vet happy with our perfomance, however on this occasion it didnt find favour with the judges. However it was a quality field and we certainly enjoyed playing in the huge opera house, which had a fantastic acoustic. Congratulations to Thornton Cleverleys and Allerton Brass who will be representing the north west at Cheltenham and who produced two quality performances.
