Watford Band

Knebworth

The band played 2 days over the weekend at Knebworth. For once the weather was largely benign and a good crowd turned out for the first run out of the band's summer program.

St Peters - Show Music Concert

An enthusiast audience must appreciated the band's renditions of well known show music. From the Sound of Music and Cats to Breezin' down Broadway the music had the crowd foot tapping and singing along Photos from St Peter's

Last night of the Proms

On Saturday the 10th October The Watford Band performed at St Peters Church , London Colney to a large appreciative audience. It was good for the band to have such a great audience who entered Into the spirit in true Proms fashion. The programme of music included, Rule Britannia Overture, Glenn Miller selection and tunes from around the British Isles. Solos included Benedictus from The Armed Man, and Highland Cathedral both performed by Alan Alexander on Euphonium. The second half included novelty items in Sandpaper Ballet, (3 suspect workmen arrived to carry out work in the Church allegedly!). The Typewriter featured Sam showing his secretarial skills. The evening concluded in traditional style with Jerusalem , Land of Hope and Glory and Fantasia on British Sea Songs all of which featured some fine singing from Amy Cross. Thank you to the Church and everyone that contributed to a great evening.
