‘Reverence’ Rebecca Nelson and the Band of The Welsh Guards

In April of this year we spent four days in London with the Band of The Welsh Guards. We were based at Wellington Barracks where we recorded a number of ‘backing tracks’ with the Band for the New Zealand based professional singer Rebecca Nelson.

The talented young kiwi musician enlisted as a reservist in The Royal New Zealand Navy in 2013 to serve her country in voice as the official singer for the Royal New Zealand Navy Band. She has, in that capacity, performed throughout the world at many commemorative events. 

Rebecca has since returned to New Zealand where she has completed the vocal tracks. Next month she will release her CD ‘Reverence’, initially in New Zealand with a UK launch here in the New Year.

Proceeds from sales in New Zealand will be donated to TE KIWI MĀIA charity – The Courageous Kiwi Charitable Trust and in this country to Help for Heroes.

In all, some twenty two tracks were recorded for the album and you can learn more by keeping in touch with Rebecca’s website and through her Facebook page.

‘Christmas’ Rushen Silver Band MHP119

Our latest recording project has been completed and is now en route to the factory for manufacture.

‘Christmas’ is the brand new brass band recording by the Isle of Man based Rushen Silver Band. This is our third project with them.

We spent four days on the island in February of this year and have fond memories of our time there. Of particular interest were the logistical problems caused by ‘Storm Erik’ which, at times, caused some problems with the recording schedule!

Rushen Silver Band is based in the south of the Isle of Man and is a thriving organisation  which includes a healthy Training Band. This Band, Ballafesson Brass is validated by the Isle Of Man’s Children’s University. They are supported by an active ‘Friends Group’ an enthusiastic group of people who help to raise money and support the Band.

The CD will be launched at the Band’s 70th Anniversary Gala Concert on Saturday 19th of October 2019. On this occasion the Band will be conducted by the inimitable Richard Evans, who regularly spends time on the Island with them.

To learn more about the Band’s work please visit their website where you will be able to purchase the CD. Take some time to have a look at their informative and regular Rushen Silver Band Newsletter, indeed subscribe to it.
