Sunday Bandstand weekly brass band programme 21 January 2018


Hello Brass Banders - Welcome to another two hours of sparkling music from the world of brass bands. As always I have a varied and eclectic choice for you this week. A special mention of 'A British March Parade...', any band taking this on needs to have both the ability and almost as important the stamina to play it.

A sprinkling of bands from overseas and some wonderful soloists. Sit back and enjoy the show....

Don't forget Sunday Bandstand is always open for requests and questions about the world of brass bands. Or if your band has a new CD I am always pleased to play a couple of tracks to promote your band efforts, your band's website and of course the CD. If you check out my website you will find in the Sunday Bandstand section shows going back 3.6 years and a review section. I will have your CD reviewed and then place it on the website review area. There is also lots of brass band memories to enjoy - if you have an interesting story get in touch we might be able to post it on the website
