Ian’s Update May 2023

A big thanks to around 250 people who came to our Spring Concerts at Taverham Village Hall in March – our first Spring Concerts since 2019 due to Covid.  As reported last month we included some items in the programme which had been selected by Peter Almond for his 80th birthday concert some 14 years ago.  Peter sadly passed away at the age of 94 and was still playing with the Band just 2 weeks before he passed.

The band were honoured to play at his funeral, attended by around 80 people, and we performed ‘There’s No Business Like Show Business’ as a tribute to Peter’s many years as a professional trumpet player on the professional entertainment circuit.

We are now working on our summer music programme with several bookings out and around the county. We are also planning 2024, a special year for the Band as we reach our 50th birthday!!
