On Saturday, City of Bristol Brass Band competed against 7 other bands (including the Welsh Regional champions, Goodwick and Runners-Up Llwydcoed) in the South East Wales Brass Band Association (Ebbw Vale) contest. The rehearsal at 11.30 was a good one (most likely due to the excellent teas, coffees and bacon butties available!) but
our performance on stage was not our best. At the results ceremony it was announced that we were third behind Goodwick and winners Treherbert band, so maybe our performance wasn't so bad afterall!
I am now busy rehearsing the duet "Another Fine Mess!", a comedic exploration of the music used in Laurel and Hardy. The notes are easy enough... it's the dancing I can't do! (I'm sure there will be videos soon enough!)
