    All this talk about clowns has really gotten my brain ticking. What are peoples favourite clown related pieces of music arranged for brass band?

    Here are mine:
    Send in the Clowns, Glynis Johns
    Tears of a Clown, smokey robinson
    Death of a Clown, Dave Davies
    You to me are everything, the real thing
    Entrance of the gladiators, Julius Cesar
    And of course, wannabe by the spice girls

    I have just remembered now, wasn't the priest from ballykissangel in that panorama documentary about the clown that was a trombone player? I nearly forgot about that. Does anyone know what happened to him? They only ever seemed to make the one film about it

    Do you mean the older Priest or the younger ? The young Priest was Stephen Tompkinson who's Inspector Banks now. I've seen him in loads of things. He never seems very convincing to me.

    Its a long time ago, i think it was Father Clifford, he was the trombone player. If i remember correctly, Obe Wan Kenobi for some reason was playing the tenor horn. It was a good documentary though, I think Bamber Gascoigne or someone narrated it.

    My apologies, Terry Wogan was the priest who was the clown that played trombone
