Over the last few weeks whilst we’ve been unable to meet for rehearsals, we decided to make a remote recording from the comfort of our own homes. Individual videos were submitted and then the sound and video edited to produce this performance of the William Rimmer March, “The Cossack”. We hope you enjoy listening to this as much as we did creating it.
We are pleased to announce that we are now able to offer online purchasing via PayPal of both of our recordings, “A Suffolk Prelude” recorded in 2008 and “Horizons” in 2016. For further details please visit our Recordings page.
All around the country bands have been finding ways to keep occupied during the lockdown. With concerts and rehearsals cancelled, experiments with playing via the internet have been taking place and we have been recording and are now editing a performance of the famous William Rimmer march, “The Cossack”. It is now in the final editing stage and we hope to be able to post it on the website in the very near future.
Here is a bit of fun we had to wet the appetite.
Due to lockdown we were unable to play for our wonderful sponsors today. Undaunted we were able to share a social distancing version of the last post to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the end of the war in Europe.
The last post was played by our Repiano cornet Jon Holden.
The band is on lockdown like everyone else right now. Once the lockdown eases we will re-assess the diary dates and concerts. We will update you all when these dates when we know what is happening. Just to help you through the Corona Blues the band have recorded a video message to you all, especially the NHS and key workers.
Happy New Year!
We are currently putting together or concert and contest schedule for 2020. A few dates have been confirmed so far and there are more in the pipeline.

Our concert in aid of the local homeless charity SELIG takes place tonight! If you are near Ipswich please come, enjoy some top music and support the charity at this busy time of year. For those who love Christmas there will indeed be plenty of Christmas music to enjoy. For those who are not so keen there will be plenty of other music on offer. We will be in the church hall off Bucklesham Road.
Its nearly Christmas so it will soon be time to visit our friends in Coddenham once again.
