Over the last few weeks I’ve been spending some of my spare evenings rehearsing with a second band, Ibstock Brick Brass, due to my appearance within their ranks at this years Pontins contest in Prestatyn.
My own band weren’t going this year so I jumped at the chance to go with another. We’ll be playing Philip Sparke’s excellent London Overture tomorrow sometime, then there may be a short visit to the bar where much liquid will be consumed.
This is a great contest usually, though it’s more of a social event than anything else. I reckon it must be the most lucrative weekend of the whole year for Pontins what with the whole place being packed out with boozy brass banders drinking the place dry.
I apologise in advance if I get pissed and upset someone by being rude or offensive. I really can’t handle my beer ;)
