Band plays at Bournemouth
Bournemouth Bandstand is always one of the highlights of the year for the band. The bandstand is situated in an ideal place to attract the passing visitors and therefore there is always a good crowd to listen to the music being played.
The band played two concerts on the 24th July, one in the morning and one later in the afternoon. This is quite a heavy workload for the band and therefore a larger number of players is often required. We are generally able to achieve this with the help of guest players from other bands. Some of our guests are almost regulars but they generally all enjoy coming to Bournemouth. In particular, we were priviliged to have 5 trombone players who gave us a great rendition of “The Bold Gendarmes”. Other highlights of the day included “Barnard Castle”, “Blow the Wind Southerly” and “Lord of the Dance”.
