    In an attempt to see what pieces are popular amongst bands in their current concert programmes, we invite you to list the pieces recently performed by your bands in your most recent concert. You may also, of course, list the programmes of any concerts you've been to listen to.

    Please provide as much details as you can about each piece.

    We are aware that this has been done on tMP a few years ago, but feel the time is right for a fresh approach.

    Please note this thread cannot be used to advertise forthcoming concerts, or to post links to promote the selling of the music, there are other areas on tMP with their own guidelines to cover that sort of stuff.

    Over to you..............................

    Killamarsh's last own concert was based on a theme of a 1920/30s Mediterranean Cruise - we played

    Coronation Scot
    Adagio from Spartacus (Onedin Line)
    Spread a Little Happiness
    Buster Strikes Back (cornet solo)
    Puttin on The Ritz

    Satin Doll
    Minnie The Moocher (bass trom solo)
    Li'l Darlin'
    The Millers Dance
    As Time Goes By
    Fantasia on Tico Tico
    Encore - Amparita Roca

    We then used the same programme plus a few extras at Stocksbridge Band Club so as above less Tico Tico, Adagio and Buster Strikes Back plus

    All In The April Evening
    The Last Spring
    Here There And Everwhere (cornet solo)
    Only Love (flugel solo)
    Montreal Citadel

    I think for our next two concerts in May we'll be using the above with a few more changes as we bring in our summer outdoor music.

    We try to adapt the programme as we move through the year and our next target theme will be for a concert in September at Heacham to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the founding of Jamestown in USA.

    Who is the publisher? - I'd love to get it

    Huntingdon, Cambs.
    De Haske is the publisher of the version we played (Dead Mans Chest). If you wanted to order it make sure you specify the version as DH also do a 'slightly easier' medley from the first film.

    Hope that this helps.
