Rain doesn't stop play for Denton Brass

Despite the horrendous downpours, Denton Brass kept the punters happy and dry with two recent local concerts.

Denton Brass

 

Denton Brass has just completed a busy weekend of music making, with two enthusiastically received concerts performed to packed appreciative audiences — despite the horrendous weather that lashed down on the local area.

War time memories

On the Friday the band entertained the congregation at Stalybridge Unitarian Church, followed by a Sunday performance at Marple Conservative Club, with both events featuring a second half of themed war time music to commemorate the centenary of the start of World War 1 and the 70th anniversary of D Day.

Pieces such as ‘Mood Indigo’, ‘Arnhem’ and ‘Miller Magic’, were mixed with the likes of ‘Famous British Marches’ and ‘Bless ‘Em All’.

A special thanks must go to Mark Singleton from the Ring O’ Bells Pub, who in anticipation of the monsoon conditions that followed, very kindly arranged for the band to play indoorsMD, Matt Bailey

Special thanks

MD Matt Bailey told 4BR: "A special thanks must go to Mark Singleton from the Ring O’ Bells Pub, who in anticipation of the monsoon conditions that followed, very kindly arranged for the band to play indoors at the Con Club saving the concert from being cancelled."
