Pink Bra'ss

Rehearsals Start for Upcoming Concert

There was great excitement as Pink Bra'ss gathered together once again to prepare for their next endeavour.  This year the band are performing a concert in aid of The Stephen Sykes Appeal. 

Solo trombonist, Stephen Sykes of Shepton Mallet, supported the band last year by  performing at their concert in aid of Breast Cancer Now.  Unfortunately, at this time, Stephen was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma, a form of cancer.  Stephen has undergone six different chemotherapies, however, none have been successful.  His only hope of reducing the cancer sufficiently to receive a lifesaving stem cell transplant is to treat him with a new type of drug called a PD1 blocker.  Unfortunately the drug is above the NHS funding threshold so we are busy fundraising. 

To the right is a video clip taken during the band's first rehearsal this year.  Come along and hear to rest of the concert on Saturday 8th July!  Tickets are £10 and available to order on the home page of this website or from Specsavers, Wells.


Concert at the Wells Town Hall, 22nd July 2016

"Congratulations on a wonderful concert, a sell out to a very appreciative audience and another audience outside!!  A very pink evening"

Mr P Hamlin


"What a great success you all made of Friday night's concert.  Thanks to you all for your efforts"

Mr P Vann


These are just some of the comments made by delighted members of the audience at the first ever Pink Bra'ss concert on Friday 22nd July.

The band kicked off their performance with a rousing rendition of Blaze Away and then proceeded to take the audience on a musical journey through the decades and genres from The Beatles, Abba and Pharell Williams and through the musicals to West Ends Shows.

Musical treats were provided by; singer Beverley King who raised the roof with Bring Him Home and the song made famous by the Military Wives Choir, Wherever You Are; Stephen Sykes with his trombone solo Concert Variations by Don Lusher and a surprise tuba solo from Steve Sykes.

As it was a hot summer's evening all the windows of the hall were open, much to the delight of people in the market square who also enjoyed the concert!
