Elland Silver Band: Sunday Brass at the Boarshurst Band Club (12 December 2018)

Superb Silver in party mood with excellent concert

With Christmas drawing near and our brass banding movement’s need to get back to brass with gusto, Elland Silver Band gave us a concert that ticked all these boxes. Apart from having a rich assortment of Christmas pieces, its programme had a nice number of light-hearted popular works and four great solos. All of which played to perfection and lovingly curated by Jonathan Beatty. With their usual Musical Director Daniel Brooks otherwise engaged, they called upon the former Fairey and Dinnington conductor.

Another thrilling programme of high-octane brass banding

Forget John Terry’s substitution and the farcical Guard of Honour. Once more, The Highlight of the Weekend was closer to Stalybridge than Stamford Bridge. This was marked by Elland Silver Band’s second gig over the last year at The World Famous Boarshurst Band Club®.

Vibrant programme made for party atmosphere

Elland Silver Band closed the weekend in a rousing style with one of the most entertaining concerts of 2016. On the 23 October [Sunday], their tightly packed, dynamic, 90 minute programme gave the Boarshurst faithful a real treat. One with sublime solos. Also fresh talent, helped in no small part by the band’s wonderful Youth, Training, and Starter bands. Not least their success at Hardraw Scar and Bolsover entertainment contests and, for Elland Silver Youth Band, the Rochdale contest – all in the space of six weeks.
