As the 75th anniversary of VE Day approached earlier this month, several of the band members performed the Last Post to mark the occasion. However, it wasn’t just the cornet players, a double E flat tuba expertly played by Stephen Wicks, also featured.
We put together a short video showcasing everyone’s efforts, and also remotely recorded a version of Moonlight Serenade as part of the tributes.
Seeing as we are all stuck indoors, no rehearsals, no after rehearsal drinks at the club, we have collated our members and supporters Top 3 brass tracks and created a Spotify playlist to share with you all. It’s a work in progress, and collaborative, so new tracks can be added in the future.
