Laa Columb Killey - 25/06/09

The weather was kind to this year's Laa Columb Killey, with bright warm sunshine being the order of the day. The afternoon festivities started with a parade from Ballabeg Church Hall, with the band leading, followed by the float carrying the princess and her attendants, and all the children in fancy dress.

World Tin Bath Championships - 27/06/09

Saturday afternoon saw the band once more in action at the annual Tin Bath Championships held in Castletown inner harbour, when we played to the gathering crowds for the hour or so prior to the start of the racing. Under the baton of Rodney we blasted through a similar programme to that which we played for Laa Columb Killey the previous Thursday but also containing some different items, such as the trombone trio "I Will Follow Him", Major Thirtle's arrangement of "The Parade of the Tin Soldiers" and "The Abba Collection". Thanks to Jill Collings and Charlotte Bell from Rushen Silver Band for once again coming along to assist.
