My billet at Clydebank for the weekend had played with Johnstone, although he only heard about 4 bands as they had asked for a late draw due to a number of players working in the morning, and then he'd come away early to get to our evening concert. He did say he'd heard some good playing, though ;)

This is a great contest and well worth attending as a player or listener. The hall was pretty full all day, the facilities laid on by Dallmenington Band are fantastic and a great credit to them. It is one of the few contests around where people play then go listen and still manage to have a small beverage ????

Campbeltown Brass played well but had abit of an off day at the results, altho we had a better time socialising in the bar and then out in Glasgow afterwards!! Well done to the prizewinners and also to Whitburn's Bass end for doing the treble!

We played:

Cornish Cavalier
Overture from Music from the Royal Fireworks
Over the Rainbow
Misson Impossible
American Trilogy

I guested with Unison Kinneil at the very last minute and they played:

Phantom Menace
2nd movement from Partita
Truth to be the Lord, (Flugal solo) (or it was called something like that!)
Credo
cant mind the last piece, it was one of Paul Drurys arrangements!

Just to mention to those who werent there, it was a 20min entertainment contest, but with a new twist for this year, every band had to include a movement from a test piece.

Was it not "Save The Last Dance For Me".

Hope those Lochgelly reprobates didn't lead your young band astray in Glasgow. :)

Yeh thats what it was, knew it had something to do with dance in the title!!

The Lochgelly crew werent behaving too badly, couldve been worse....!!!!!!!
 
Here's what Unison Kinneil played. Willie was too busy looking at the notes to look at the titles. Not surprising given that he played at a couple of hours notice!

Phantom Menace (Williams arr. Andy Duncan)
Flugel Solo : Trust in the Lord (arr. Paul Drury)
Movt. 2 from Parrtita (Philip Sparke)
Save the Last Dance for Me (arr. Paul Drury)
Credo (Lorne Barry)

Really enjoy Troon. It always seems like a good way to start the contesting season again after the summer. Just wish we could get a better result at it sometimes!

Paul Drury
Unison Kinneil Band
 
We sat and listened to the first 5 bands. I think this is what they played;

1) Brass Sounds Inverclyde;
Aces High
The Mission
To a Wild Rose
Mvts. 3/4 from Anglian Dances
A Trumpet Tune

2) Kirkintilloch Kelvin;
Valero
My Funny Valentine
Eleanor Rigby
Elegy from a Downland Suite
Barbarian Horde

3) Dunfermline;
Strike up the Band
By the Time I get to Pheonix
Mexican Holiday
Hey Jude
Last mvt. of Essay

4) St.David's;
Birdland
Schindler's List
Opus One
Heroic March from Epic Symphony (there might've been something else?)

5) Buckhaven and Methil;
Meet the Flintstones
Holyrood Park from the Royal Mile Suite
Ticket to Ride
Angels
Gladiator

Like you, Paul, I think it's a smashing contest and a lovely day, and it was great fun to conduct Lochgelly - the band enjoyed it, and I think a few others did too! Never mind, there's always next year!

Good to see bands playing such a variety of pieces rather than what's just fashionable! Too often bands repeat certain items in programme contests!

I thought "I only have eyes for you" was superb. Suited Brian to a tee and the band accomp. was class. Great arrangement. As soon as we have a bass trom I'll be on the look out for it.
Dave
 
Thanks Dave,

It's not entirely my arrangement! When Obrasso asked me to do the song, I couldn't get past what Roger Harvey did to it for London Brass, and asked if it'd be ok to "copy" it. They said ok and would sort out the rights etc. - but it's listed as my arrangement, solely. It's not an exact copy, but there's no doubt where I got it from!!
