Sunday Bandstand weekly brass band programme 10 February 2019


Hello Brass Banders

Welcome to my weekly two hour brass band show Sunday Bandstand. The show has now been running since December 2007. On my website are two hour shows in an archive dating back to August 2014, so there are plenty shows to go at if you want a little wall to wall brass band music and I certainly try not to have the same piece played by the same band in the year.

Don't forget if you have a request or even a question about brass bands please contact me by email: or through my website

Enjoy the show....

Jessa Liversidge is a versatile singer specialising in vintage songs from 1900s-1940s as well as musical theatre, light classical and classic pop.

Jessa's flawless, effortless vocals, friendly manner and versatile repertoire result in a busy schedule of performing. She devises and performs her own one-woman shows in venues from theatres and arts centres to cafes and care homes, adapting and refining programmes to suit the audience. For different events, Jessa can perform with a range of accompaniments, from live piano accompaniment to backing tracks or a range of instrumentalists to suit the occasion and venue.

We are very pleased to hear Jessa on Sunday Bandstand for the first time. She is featured on the Shepherd Group Brass Band CD and is accompanied by the band conducted by Richard Wilton. She will be appearing on future shows.
