Weekly Recordings – Week 2

Today’s recording is Duke Ellington’s “Second Line”. Harking back to New Orleans this track is packed with feel you can almost taste, especially in James Barros’ clarinet solos! Make sure you come back next week for more and, if you can’t wait that long, check out our recordings page.

New MD

Last night we held our MD auditions which were closely contested by two of the current members of the band.

However, there can only be one MD and that is Joshua Wakeham!

We look forward to working with him over the coming year and the new directions he will take the band.

Musical Director Auditions

We are going to be auditioning for next year’s MD on Tuesday.

If you are interested, go to the contact us page and leave a message.

Gallery Appeal!

Have you taken a look at our new gallery yet? It could be bigger and better but for that, we need your help. If you have any photos of us doing anything as a band, go to the contact us page and we will tell you how to email it to us (sorry – we don’t want to publish our address here because of Spam-bots).
