Besses Boys Band has just returned from a self-funded five-day European tour, visiting Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg and the Netherlands.

The band performed three concerts, including one at Drielandenpunt; the point at which Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands meet. Concert programmes comprised a mix of traditional standards, solo items and music from stage and screen, all of which were well received by appreciative audiences.

The open-air concerts were well attended, with audience numbers swelled to standing room only once the sounds of the band drifted through the many local cafes and bars.

A representative of Luxembourg City Council made a presentation to MD James Holt, thanking him for '...entertaining the people of Luxembourg with your wonderful music'.

The tour itinerary interspersed concerts with opportunities to spend time exploring the cultural and social heritage of the local area, including a visit to Cologne Cathedral and boat trip along the Rhine.

MD James Holt said: "Tours such as this are a great opportunity to spend time together both on and off the concert stage. Over the past few years we've run several successful tours and this was certainly one of the best, especially with the three fabulous concerts.

My thanks go to all band members and supporters for their part in making this tour such an enjoyable success."
