Last Sunday afternoon (15th August 2021) the band were delighted to finally be back doing what we do best – entertaining the public!
The easing of Covid-19 restrictions meant that Blenheim Gardens bandstand in gorgeous Minehead provided the stage for our first concert since Christmas 2019. Luckily, the rain held off and an appreciative audience enjoyed the varied programme of music that, as a full band, we had only been allowed to rehearse for a few weeks.
Our resident music arranger, John Bryant, had been extremely busy during the lockdown periods and our programme included five brilliant brand new pieces from his ever increasing portfolio. We are so lucky to have his talents!
After such a long time away from playing, it was amazing to be together on a stage again. Such is the fantastic team spirit in Weston Brass, it was like we’d never been away.
