    The British Airways Brass Band will be touring Los Angeles, USA, from November 1st.-8th. as guests of the Golden State British Brass Band, with guest Willson Euphonium artist Charley Brighton as soloist, conducted by Major Colin Reeves.

    It would be good to meet up with any tmp members in that area.

    Tour details are here;

    Best wishes, CB.

    Give a big smiley hello to my old boss Major Colin!!!:D

    He was my MD in the Adjutant Generals Corps for a time, a nicer bloke you couldn't hope to meet, although his humour is quite dry! lol A Top Bloke and a damn good musician!

    Got back yesterday afternoon after a fantastic tour of LA, which included a last minute visit to the Kanstul factory in Fullerton, CA.

    Great concerts & audiences and just the best welcome ever from our US hosts!

    Some early pics here;

    Thanks Jason, I left out the best bit!

    On our outward bound flight (though up in first class of course) was Jennifer Aniston of 'Friends'.

    She smiled at me as she collected her luggage (lol).
