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

“The band playing was exceptional this year, and many have commented on the really good mix of carols and popular music.

Once again, huge thanks for playing for us again.”

“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.”

“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.”
