Despite the restrictions still in place, we have had a great start to our summer season. It has been brilliant to get back out there and do what we love...having fun playing great music!
At the end of April we had a very busy day in the studio recording our first album. We laid down five tracks and left the studio really pleased with the initial results. This is currently being mixed and should hopefully be available on Spotify, iTunes and Amazon music towards the end of the summer. With hits from Culture Club to Harry Styles, we guarantee you will love it!
May saw us actually out and performing to people! We enjoyed a fantastic reception at The Queen's Head, Watnall where a great crowd endured some extremely changeable weather for two sets of brass hits. We are looking forward to returning on 18th July.
On 29th May we needed lips of steel as we performed two gigs in one day! During the afternoon we played two sets at the fabulous Bustler Street Food Market in Derby. The crowd were amazing and we enjoyed playing two sets in the blistering heat. Check out our social media pages to see photos and videos of the fantastic crowd. In the evening we headed across to Loughborough to play in the beer garden at one of our most supportive venues, The Swan in the Rushes. Again, the crowd were fantastic. It is always brilliant to see people aged from 18 to 80 singing along and dancing, especially to our favourite Dolly hit...9 to 5!
Video has always been a big part of what we do and this first part of the summer has been no exception. As we mentioned in our previous blog, we've joined up with Two Button Brass in the USA to record two epic lockdown videos. Check out Blinding Lights on our Facebook page HERE. Bohemian Rhapsody will be released this coming weekend on the Two Button Brass YouTube channel.
We are nearly out of lockdown and at the time of writing restrictions are due to end fully on 19th July. That means we have so much more to look forward to over the rest of the summer. Check out our "Where to see us" page to find out where you can join us over the next month or so. Hope to see you soon!
