I’ve had another evening of Brass Band fun with the excellent Ransome Band tonight. I helped out again at a concert they had at the Winding Wheel Theatre in Chesterfield – a Last Night at the Proms stylee concert.
I’ve really enjoyed playing with them over the last week. It’s an utter pleasure to play with a quality Championship Section band like this, especially when they’re a good bunch too. I’m even cheap to hire – play for beer!
The audience seemed to really enjoy it too, especially the typical bombastic stuff that is always played at these events. The Fantasy on British Seasongs always goes down well, as does Land of Hope and Glory. Ransomes do and excellent Ray Farr arrangement of various Star Wars themes – it’s such a brilliant piece to play and listen too.
I hope I’ll get to play with them again in the future.
