Band on a Tram
In 2015 The Merseyside Tram Preservation Society had restored tram 245 and to assist in it's launch we provided a fanfare as it left the tram shed and then played a selection of marches on top of a tram as it traveled from the shed to Birkenhead's Woodside Ferry. If you click on the Band On A Tram image you can see and hear us playing the fanfare as the tram left the shed and then get a pedestrians ear view of us playing while the tram passes by.
It was great fun, the BTPS people made us most welcome, and, for once that year, the sun shone while we played..
Below are a few images of the band, just click on them to see a zoomed out image.

While the rest of us at least had seats Eddie had to try and hold the whole thing together whilst hanging onto the doorway.
