We had a great gig playing with primary school children at Nottingham Academy Primary (@NottinghamAcad), as part of their music festival. Mr Barker (our conductor) invited #BelvoirBigBand to join in the concert, and we enjoyed listening to groups of children on strings, ukeles. Soloists took on challenging songs with success and parents and the band gave them encouragement and applause!
The band started playing with a few tunes from Blues Brothers. Then children joined in on ukeles for La Bamba, and strings for the theme tune from Austin Powers (yeah baby!!) For the final number two brave girls conducted the band and tried to keep us in check with a fast rock song!
The headmaster was pleased with the concert, so I hope we'll be back again next year.
