Dance Monkey anyone?

The latest Isolation initiative from BrassFestUK is aimed right at the the youth of today...

Isolation
  The latest BrassFestUK initiative has a youth music angle

BrassFestUK continues to reach out to the banding world with registration now closed for its Isolation3 (42nd Street) initiative with the finished video due to be released on the 10th October.

And now, organiser Rob Tompkins is offering the opportunity for youth players across the globe to take part in Isolation Youth — a massed band video for players under 19 years of age on the 1st November.

Dance Monkey

Rob told 4BR: "Over 1000 players have signed up to the three Isolation videos that have so far been organised. A lot of these have included younger players and I thought it would be a great project to give them a chance to have their own video production."

Rob has chosen 'Dance Monkey' by Tone & I, one of the biggest hit songs of last 12 months — a huge hit for the Australian band and now hopefully a popular piece for the young brass players.
