Cancelled due to extreme weather forecast – A small group of CBBB players will be performing at the Open Day at Billesley Allotments.
It’s been a busy time for the band. Riding high on the results from the Midlands Area contest, the band took part in a Commonwealth Ceremony on Monday at the Council House, Birmingham.
Alongside Birmingham City Council Choir, Claire Noakes, and Eternal Taal the band performed to dignitaries, faith leaders and congregation in a celebration of friendship.
It was an honour to be part of this event to mark this special day in our home city.
CBBB aren’t always out in full force and the Billesley Land Allotments Open Day was one such occasion.
As invited guests for the event, a small group of CBBB members entertained visitors at this special event.
With something for all the family, from wildlife stalls to gardening advice, light music and popular tunes were just right for this outdoor performance.
Being part of the diverse local musical community in Midlands is something we relish and will jump at opportunities to add that Brass Band sound to a performance.
A group looking for that distinctive sound were Don’t Call Me Ishmael, a five piece alt-pop band from Staffordshire.
Arriving at Stirchley Baths on a sunny Saturday, members of CBBB were ready to record the ballad ‘Until You Can’t Run Anymore’. The track was written for Don’t Call Me Ishmael’s third album and the addition of a brass harmonies gave another layer and depth to the song.
A great opportunity to play with some fantastic songwriters and musicians in a beautiful venue.
