There was a great day of brass band playing to enjoy at the Pogson Bray Entertainment Contest at Berties Banqueting Hall in Elland on Sunday 20th October. 14 bands took part, performing various well know tunes, marches and solos.

Lofthouse Brass Band opened their set with Alan Fernie’s 'Mexican Holiday', followed by the Salvation Army cornet solo, 'Don’t Doubt Him Now,' played from memory by the band’s principal cornet James Whitaker. The set continued with Alan Fernie’s arrangement of Bob Gaudio’s hit ‘Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You’ and the Salvation Army march Goldcrest. Finally the programme finished off with a performance of Peter Graham’s ‘Charter Fair (from The Haslemere Suite).

A spokesman for All4Brass commented “A good show, nice tidy stuff and the cornet solo was beautifully done. Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You is smooth and pop’y and the finisher is a good show of technique. A good show”

After putting on a fine performance finished in 4th place, also taking the ‘Best 3rd Section Band’ prize.
