LGB Brass danced their way into second place at the recently held SCABA Entertainment Contest held on 18th May at the Hawth Theatre in Crawley.
Entered in the B section and playing a well chosen and balanced Dance flavoured programme the band caught the ear of well known adjudicator Richard Evans. He complemented the band on its great sound and commented saying it was the first band of the day that looked like a band, praise indeed!
Notable contributions were made by the trombone section in the Tudor Line Dance ( Pastime with good company), the entire cornet section in Spanish eyes, and our percussion section during Hernandos Hideaway which featured an excellent castanet solo – apparently achieved using no hands! a slow reflective rendition from Checkmate followed by the finale from from Prelude Song and Dance concluded our performance.
The band has done well at this event over recent years and was rightly pleased with the result and the praise given by Richard Evans who has achieved much success himself during entertainment competitions over many years at the highest level.
