We post some - but by no means all - on our website in the 'engagements' section.

But to set the ball rolling, we are doing a joint concert with an American choir tomorrow evening and the band's programme will be:

Children of Sanchez
Festive Overture
Soul Bossa Nova
Around the World (a cracking march by Alex Owen!)
Harry Potter
Two Imps (xylo duet)
Rhapsody in Brass
Stars and Stripes Forever



The following is our 'set list', rather than a programme, for our forthcoming concert in France:

Hootenanny (Harold Walters)
Trumpet Blues and Cantabile (Harry James and Jack Mathias)
Pineapple Poll (Arthur Sullivan)
Light As Air (Goff Richards)
Way Out West (Brian Crooks)
Concierto de Aranquez (Rodrigo)

I'm playing that this afternoon in the park with the Jersey Youth Wind Band. (yes I know it's a horrible wind band, but it's compulsary!)

Rhapsody in Brass

And that's just a brilliant piece, we won our first contest with that.

yup Jagrins run by gareth pritchard.. they do alot of the old Alex Owen stuff done for Besses...
Around the World being one of the classics...
written in 2 days.. on a ship !!!!! during the 1906-9 world tour i think ;)

i`ve e mailed them for info and prices.don`t suppose anybody has a sample to listen too.

No, but if you'd been at our concert this evening...

It is a classic band march with some very individual touches. But it's not easy - top C's for much of the band in the first bar and plenty do do for everyone.

its generally known to be the hardest march ever written!
but its very good

Hmm, I think that title now goes to the "Navigation Inn" march, written for, who other than, The Navigation Inn Whit Friday band by Philip Sparke. It's quite ridiculous in places.



Here's our programme for sunday in Heywood and next Sunda6y in Glossop:

Barnard Castle
Londonderry Air
I Will Follow Him
Men of Harlech
With One Look
Hey Jude
Schindler’s List
Our Boys Will Shine Tonight
Love Changes Everything

Castell Coch
I Don’t Know How To Love Him
The Lost Chord
Ticket to Ride
Musket, Fife & Drum

Has anyone got any good ideas for entertaining pieces that ain't too tricky! I like to save the band for the more 'stressful' pieces!

Thanks mattb,it`s a good programme,we have some of them,not all.Do you use large letters when you do YMCA,i saw a band bass section stand up at the appropriate time to spell it out.Francis Clifford has done a Film Suite based on horror,comedy,romance,and adventure.Good luck with your concert
