To alleviate the tedium of Lockdown, we've been setting the band small challenges - the first was to record themselves playing upside down. It's harder than you think (with the possible exception of a trombone) - Here's the fruit of our labours...

I've been creating websites for brass bands over many years.  They have always required me to make updates and correct any mistakes (that I made). That's going to change!

Community Banding in the Middle of London

468 min read

In the grey, impersonal, frankly unfriendly and often fairly grubby City of London area, one might wonder whether a sense of community exists. The City of London itself has a population of under 10,000 (according to the 2011 census) compared to the 9 million that live in London altogether – meaning hardly anyone actually lives in district, despite its jostling crowds of city workers during the day. So what, you may ask, is a community brass band doing there?
