Hunstanton Band Stand

With the steady off shore breeze keeping us cool, but blowing our music and stands everywhere, we fastened everything down in order for our concert on the Hunstanton Band stand to begin.
People were out in force on a very hot Saturday afternoon, with people finding a shady spot to enjoy the sun, sea views and sax quartet! With help from some enthusiastic toddlers we passed the afternoon away, playing some of our favourite and new pieces to the public.
The band stand at Hunstanton has been booked for a repeat performance on Saturday 5th August 2006, 2-4pm. Hope to see you there!

Royal Norfolk Show

Without a cloud in the sky and the sun beaming down brightly it was evident that summer had finally arrived, and we were walking round the hundreds of stalls at the Royal Norfolk Show.
After spending the morning in the baking heat looking at everything from Bentleys to bracelets we arrvied back at the Duke of Edinburghs award stand ready to start our set. Whilst the esteemed guests tucked into their lunch we played to the public and guests alike.
Later that afternoon we returned to give a special performance, with some of the toher groups who had been playing that day,to the Earl of Wessex, Prince Edward. Once the music had finished the prince came and spoke to all the performers, and we presented him with a copy of our album much to his delight.
Hopefully this will set the trend for the rest of this summers gigs, with brilliant weather and great audiences!
