“More Than Brass” release

In what has been a particularly busy time, we have also sent the work for the latest ‘Boobs and Brass’ project for manufacture.

“More Than Brass” is the second album by the Northamptonshire based all ladies’ brass band which was formed some five years ago with the sole purpose of raising money for the charity ‘Breast Cancer Campaign’. The recording, which took place at the end of September, featured some sixty players with their special guest soloists from all over the UK.

The CD will be launched at the band’s annual concert which is being held at the Lighthouse Theatre in Kettering on the 19th of November with a similar event at the Cutler’s Hall in Sheffield on the 11th of December.

“Where The Irwell Springs”

We have completed the work on the latest recording by the 2nd Rossendale Scout Group Band. The recording features a number of the band’s talented soloists in a collection of popular concert items which includes two vocal tracks.

The CD will be available from the first week of November although pre-orders by the band’s Patrons and regular supporters are particularly encouraging as a result of promotional work with local radio and television.

You can follow the band on their website at http://www.2ndrossendale.co.uk/.

“More Than Brass”

“More Than Brass” is the title of the second recording by the all female brass band ‘Boobs and Brass’. We recorded the album over the past weekend in Higham Ferrers in Northamptonshire with a band of fifty players and their special guest soloists, soprano star Michelle Ibbotson, flugel players John Lee and Mark Walters, with euphonium soloists Alison Bonnar and Trevor Groom.

The conducting duties were undertaken by Martin Dawson and John Hudson and the music recorded is a wonderful mix chosen by the soloists themselves, the players and supporters with some particularly emotional and personal requests.

The CD is due to be launched at the band’s annual concert which is being held at the Lighthouse Theatre in Kettering on the 19th of November with a similar event at the Cutler’s Hall in Sheffield on the 11th of December.
