A few weeks ago, we were delighted to host our Summer Charity Concert in aid of Reading Street Pastors. The large and enthusiastic audience were wowed by some fantastic music including Les Miserables, Yorkshire Overture, Crazy for You and Stevie Wonder hit Isn't She Lovely (complete with big band-style ending)! We had a great time and helped to raise over Β£2,500 in aid of a very worthy cause. Here are a few shots from our pre-concert rehearsal.

Were you there? If so, what was your favourite piece?!

Last Sunday found WCB taking to the picturesque Mill Meadows bandstand in Henley to entertain a large and appreciate audience enjoying a traditional afternoon's entertainment in the park! We had a lot of fun with our fantastic afternoon's programme - if you missed us, we'll be in Forbury Gardens next Sunday (4th August) at 3:00 with more of the same - see you then! ...

There are more pics to come from our successful weekend in Dorset but for now heres one of our amazing drummer Katie at our gig in Christchurch. We packed the drums and cymbals onto the coach on Saturday morning, but forgot the box of stands and pedals for them - oops.  Katie did a brilliant bit of improvisation with boxes, chairs and jumpers.  We loved the use of the cowbell instead of hi hat and suspended cymbals which really dont work unless they are mounted on a stand!  Fortunately we got the stands for Sunday in Dorchester.  Youre brilliant Katie!!

Brilliant job!

Great job Katie - the sign of a true pro! πŸ™‚

Well done Katie. Did anyone forget their uniform this year?

She’s a superstar. Well done again Katie!

I once went up Snaefell on the Isle of Man Mountain Railway to do a gig at the top. When we got there, we discovered that all the cymbal stands had been left at the bottom. We did try having someone holding the hi-hats, opening and closing them when the drummer stamped on their foot but oddly, it wasn't all that successful... Good work Katie!

She was fantastic!

She is amazing.

Star! πŸ˜‡

She is just brilliant🌟🌟🌟x

Got my ticket! xx

Heres a quick throwback to our fabulous stall at Woodley Carnival last week and the winner of our adult trophy for the NOISIEST person in all of Woodley, Keith! Keith managed to rack up an incredible reading of 135.5 on our decibel meter on the trumpet - a very worthy (and VERY loud) winner! Well done Keith!

I notice the 6-11 year olds were louder than the teenagers and nearly as loud as the adults.

Well, what a lot of fun that was! Over 150 people came along to our stall at Woodley Carnival on Saturday to try out a musical instrument and see if they could prove themselves to be the noisiest person in Woodley! 🎷🎺

Despite some extremely blustery conditions (this photo taken before we had to take the top of our gazebo off!), we had a constant flow of people and it was fantastic to meet and chat to so many people who were really keen to get to grips with something new - hopefully weve inspired the next generation of WCB!

Pictured here is Katherine who was leading the adult competition after some *very* powerful trombone playing for a lot of the afternoon with a score of 133 decibels before eventually just being beaten! If you came to see us, thanks very much! How did you do...?
