Big Shiny
  Great music from Big Shiny Brass — and with a special £10 voucher too!

As we move towards the summer bandstand season, Big Shiny Brass has a new product that can prove a lifesaver if you're short of players.

Bandstand Bonanza! features 25 audience-friendly foot-tappers, all of them arranged for flexible band, so you can play them with anything from 5 players and upwards.

Brilliant arrangements

The set includes some brilliant arrangements of popular tunes, such as the 'Go Compare' theme, 'Sloop John B' and 'Sweet Home Chicago' (as featured in 'The Blues Brothers' film), as well as many of the old brass band favourites including 'The Floral Dance', 'Teddy Bears' Picnic', 'Colonel Bogey' and 'Pomp & Circumstance'.

There are also basic learner parts, giving your younger players a chance to join in with the full band, and as with all of Big Shiny Brass's music you get loads of transpositions of the parts for maximum flexibility.

All that and you can get £10 off by just entering the code 4barsrest when you buy Bandstand BonanzaBig Shiny Brass

Support us for less than a cup of coffee...

4BR wants to ensure that the brass band movement remains vibrant and relevant. We also want to be able to question, challenge and critically examine those who run and play in it, producing high quality journalism that informs as well as entertains our readers.

So if like us you value a strong, independent perspective on the brass band world - then why not consider becoming a supporter and help make our future and that of a burgeoning brass band movement more secure.

So one less cappuccino then?
