Cleveland Concert Band’s Fund Raiser

The concert, organised by Take Heart members, was held at Great Ayton Working Men`s Club on Tuesday evening 22nd. May 2018.

The band opened the concert with the Colonel Bogey March and went on to play a varied selection of music by Abba, the Temptations, the Beatles, and Michael Jackson. A highlight of the first half was a solo performance by a band member playing guitar and singing songs by Adele and Johnny Cash. During the interval pie and peas from Petch`s were enjoyed by the audience and band members.

The second half contained music from Frozen, the Beach Boys and a medley of Glen Miller music. We also had a couple of the audience doing the Time Warp (assisted by two band members). Additionally, a band member gave us a demonstration of her Diablo skills, after which yours truly was coerced into having a go, with mixed results. (much practice needed!!)

Overall the evening was a great success. Several members stated how much they had enjoyed the evening. The band obviously enjoy playing the varied selection of music which allowed them to show off their musical talents.

Thanks to everybody who attended and supported the event which raised funds on the evening for the group. Finally thanks to The Cleveland Concert Band for once again giving us a great evening’s entertainment.
