Silver Sounds Band Update Winter 2009

The Band has had a busy summer season, which included playing at the Metheringham Fayre & Feast where the players refused to be daunted by the bad weather and managed to find a warm, dry spot in the Village Hall where they entertained throughout the afternoon.

Dunston Scarecrow Festival was a first for the Band, and they entered right into the spirit of the event by playing on both days dressed as scarecrows themselves, much to the delight of the crowds! That was a busy weekend for the Band as on the Friday they had played at a Cheese and Wine event in Nocton where they received a standing ovation for a fabulous performance.

The Band will be playing somewhere near you during December - Dunston St Peter's Christmas Tree Festival, Metheringham Methodist Church Carol Service and Branston Parish Church Carol Service, as well as carolling at various locations over the festive period!

Silver Sounds Band Christmas Concert
The Band Christmas Concert will be in Nocton Village Hall this year - it is on Saturday 19 December at 7.15pm. Entry is free and there will be a raffle and bottle draw during the evening. The concert will contain a mixture of seasonal music and Band favourites from the year, and you are invited to join the Band for light refreshments after the performance.

The Band is always welcoming of new members; whether you already play a brass instrument or would like to learn, we would love to hear from you. It only costs £15/quarter to join (around £1/week!), and you will receive tuition if required, the loan of an instrument and music, as well as the opportunity to learn new skills and to become a member of a fantastic local music-making activity.
