All about our CD

Rehearsals started on Saturday 22nd September 2001 in Derby for this Association project.

The 41-strong band was formed by volunteers from amongst the Association's member bands throughout the UK. With rehearsals during September and October, the band recorded the CD in Doncaster on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th November 2001.

The band worked very hard over the two recording days and the resulting sound was very impressive. The programme features a wide variety of music – something for everyone – which certainly shows off the full versatility of the band.

How to own a copy

The CD costs £10 now just £6 (including postage and packing).
