Piste Hägen in Romiley

The Marple Bierkeller Band, Piste Hägen Brass, could have been playing in any German town on Friday May 10th.

They could also have been received with the same enthusiasm as those who attended the Romiley and Marple Lions Bierkeller fund raising event at St Christopher’s Centre in Romiley. The concert was for the charity Varivocals and an impressive £600 was raised for the charity through ticket sales and a raffle. The Lions put together an entertaining and action packed evening with a super hot pot supper.

The audience was treated to excellent music by the 40-strong Varivocals choir in the first half. They then took a very active/vocal part in the second half when traditional German bierkeller music with drinking games were played and as the event progressed they joined in the singing of popular songs.

NW Regional Final 2019

This year the North West Brass Band Association Regional Finals were held on Sunday 24th February at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool.

The sun was shining with 17°C plus temperatures with clear blue skies compared to other years where it was put on your woolly hat and thermals if braving the bracing windchill of just above 0°C temperatures and the horizontal rain on the promenade. All boded well.

Having played at an invitation only Preview Evening the previous Saturday at Ruskin Community High school near Crewe and getting some very positive feedback our hopes were high.

Rotary Club Donation

The band would like to thank The Marple and New Mills Rotary Club for their generous donation of £250 to help towards the cost of replacing one of the bands Tenor Horns.

Howard and Ruth Groves were invited, on behalf of the band, to one of their meetings at lunchtime on Thursday 17th January to receive the cheque from their President, Mike Coleman.

Some of the bands instruments are beginning to look and sound very tired, with many being over 30 years old. We are fundraising to replace them, with the immediate priorities being a Tenor Horn and a Cornet.
