Lyme Regis – Sunday 21st July

This coming Sunday we’re playing in the band stand on the Promenade (Marine Parade) in Lyme Regis. We will be playing two one-hour sessions from 11.30am-12.30pm, then again from 2-3pm. Please arrive at the seafront band stand for 11am to set up/tune up. A few vehicles will be permitted to drive up to the band stand for offloading up to 10.30am (latest) then, again, not until after 4.30pm.

David requested that as many of us as possible meet in the top car park (Holmbush car park, DT7 3HX) at 10.30am to ensure there are enough members to help carry any instruments and heavy equipment down to the front.

Please remember to bring your banners with you. Fingers crossed for some lovely weather or, at the very least, better than we had last year.

Rock Around the Clock

Brian asked that members memorise the music from bar 59 to the end, the intention being for the band to play the end section standing without music at a future event.

Congratulations to…

Claudia who has just become engaged to be married – best wishes from all your fellow band members Claudia!

Feedback

“Just a note to say a huge ‘thank you’ to all of you in the Band for the great event on Sunday. We thought that the Band was on absolutely ‘top form’ and excelled in all aspects of the music.” 

Email from the organiser of the Kingsbury Episcopi Methodist Church carol concert held on Sunday 16th Dec 2018

“I just wanted to officially thank you all for the wonderful performance you put on for our Street Fair. It isn’t official yet but I believe this was our best year ever for fund raising. Thank you for being a part of that. I say it every year and every year I mean it, when I say Drayton Street Fair wouldn’t be the same without you. It’s the music that lends the day its particular vibrance, I believe.I hope you all enjoyed yourself and that we’ll see you again next year.”

Email from organiser, Louise Lee, following our performance on Saturday 1st Sep 2018

“Dear band members, I just wanted to say a big Thank you to you all for your wonderful performance yesterday at Vivary Park!  It was wonderful to spend 2 hours relaxing in the sunshine and being transported back to the ‘good old days’ with such an eclectic mix of great music! Keep up the good work and know that your hard work is touching people’s lives in ways you cannot imagine.”
