    Thanks for a good day Melanie. Just one thing to add - I thought the French swing band were really good as well. Shame I was driving though!

    We (Carlton Brass) played:

    Music from an Elizabethan Court: Earle of Oxford's March
    It Don't Mean A Thing
    Tender Loving Care (Sop Solo) by A Fernie
    The Contestor
    Singing in the Rain by A Fernie
    Prelude for a Solemn Occasion by A Fernie

    We would have played four Alan Fernies but we replaced Galop with The Contestor so we had a bona fida march in there ;)
