    Brighouse & Rastrick Band are delighted to announce that ‘Boobs & Brass’, the all ladies charity band from Northamptonshire will join them on stage next October in the Autumn concert of their prestigious Massed Bands series. This unique combination will undoubtedly be a first of its type and a sell out on 25th October 2008 is predicted.

    Members of the two bands first met up in July at the Whit Friday March contests. The ladies group really made their mark on proceedings and discussions have continued between the bands ever since.

    ‘Boobs & Brass’ were formed in 2006 when two brass enthusiasts formed a band to raise money for the National Breast Cancer Campaign and their local Opthalmic Unit at Kettering General Hospital. Initially comprised of players from local bands, the outstanding success and publicity from their first concert inspired many other players to offer their services from much further afield.

    After further discussions between the two bands the B&R committee had no hesitation in extending a formal invitation for Boobs and Brass to play in Huddersfield Town Hall. The prompt and enthusiastic response from Northants holds well for next October when their fee from B & R will be donated to the Breast Cancer Campaign. Watch this space for further details!
