This weekend sees an event at the Lakeside Tower that will have Brass Band enthusiasts out in their droves, possibly. It’s been called a “Brass Extravaganza” by, well, us. It’s an entertainments contest that’s been organised by my band Carlton Brass and supported by our band’s lovely sponsors Lakeside.
There are seven bands competing in total and it should turn out to be a rather good day out, weather-permitting, for those who enjoy listening to a good brass band or two (or seven in this case). I’ll be there to help with directing traffic, selling programs or whatever. It’s a shame I’m not playing myself.
Come along if you’re in the area and give me a wave/buy me a pint.
