The ‘I Love Ellesmere Port’ Music Festival returned to Civic Square. Organised for the first time last year, this free outdoor event returned this year with an exciting programme of music, dance and entertainment for the different themed days.  We were included in the ' Heart of the Port’ day featuring local music groups.

The band, a few members short due to holidays, still manged to entertained the audience with music from Sinatra to Michael Buble via Duke Ellington and the Beatles.

Eddie, our long suffering conductor, enthralls the audience with a few well tuned anecdotes and gives us all a brief rest between pieces.

The Cornets

Ably led by Steve, the cornets produced a sound which belied the reduced numbers.

Trombones to the Fore

Trombones to the Fore

We did have a full trombone section for this event - Our First Trombonist took the picture hence only two are shown. ( We don't like to use the term solo trombonist as we don't want him to get delusions of grandeur).
