The Blewbury Brass Band entertained listeners in a sunny Wallingford Castle Gardens earlier today. The band played a number of lively pieces which included solos from Martin on Flugel, and Bruce on Cornet.We were also lucky enough to be helped by some members of our audience who rattled, shook and jangled along in our performance of ‘Samba De Janiero’!
We had a lovely afternoon and were even treated to cake and tea from the organisers in our break. Thank you to everyone who came along to listen. We hope you enjoyed your afternoon and we look forward to playing for you again next year!
Blewbury Learner Band entertained fete-goers in sunny North Moreton this afternoon. We played a number of fun pieces that cheered the visitors and provided a fitting backing for the tea tent, the dog show, and the coconut shy- to name but a few stalls!
Congratulations to William, our cornet player, who played his first solo with the band. Thank you to the organisers for inviting us along, we had a lovely afternoon and hope you see you again next year.
Come and listen to our Learner Band who will be performing next Sunday 8th May at North Moreton Church Fete. The fete starts at 2pm and will will boast all the traditional stalls and games and a wonderful tea tent serving homemade cake. The band will be playing a variety of music adding colour to the afternoon. The pictures below show the Learner Band at our recent St George’s Day Concert, at the ODBBA Festival, and at the Cornerstone in Didcot where we played a successful performance to shoppers and theatre goers.
The band opened its busy summer programme with a lively selection at Brightwalton Fete. On a blustery day, we were lucky that the rain stayed away and many people came to watch. William, who was playing in the football tournament, was enlisted to make his debut in the main band and played the entire second half. Well done, William!
Thank you to the organisers who supplied the band with tea and cake in our break and for making us very welcome. We hope you enjoyed the afternoon.
