Big Band Concert - 24 Mar 2012

On 24th March The King's Bruton Big Band gave a concert for ADANA in Estepona. It seems no matter how hard we try we always end up with multiple clashes and this was no exception. We had The Sound of Music - The International Theatre Studio's latest offering - and an inordinate number of birthday parties on the same night but we managed a reasonable crowd.

The band is amazing. Composed of school students between the ages of 14 and 18 they show a poise and professionalism much beyond their years. Four vocalists and a band of 20 players soon had the audience on their feet and dancing to the sounds of Duke Ellington and Glenn Miller.

The band gave their services for free and we raised over 1,400€ for ADANA. Thanks to Trisha and her team on the bar, Helen, whose birthday it was, Helen's family for staffing the door, Mary and Ian for fetching the paella to feed the band afterwards and to the Director of the Instituto Monterosso for allowing us free use of the hall. The band will be back again but possibly not for another 4 years. Don't miss them next time.
