Once again the annual Battle of the Bands took place in the Royal Grammar School. We had three of our bands performing: the Distance, Flat Stanleys and Little Buffalo Men. Most of the other bands were older and unfortunately none of ours were in the final top three. However, they had a great time and it was a good experience for everyone.
Eleven bands performed in total, 14 performers (all boys) were in our bands. There were about 200 people in the audience, other musicians and family members.
Once again, Little Buffalo Men performed for us on Armstrong Bridge. The weather is getting better and a lot of people were out, sampling the amazing range of food stalls. Three male members of the band were here today and played for around an hour and a half. Probably about 150 people passed by, many stopping to listen. We have had lots of positive comments about the music on the bridge, with both stall holders and the public saying that they enjoy having the music as well as the stalls. Members of the the public come from both Jesmond and Heaton as well as further afield.
