Concert with Brighouse & Rastrick



MY FIRST CONCERT WITH BOOBS & BRASS AT HUDDERSFIELD TOWN HALL WITH
BRIGHOUSE & RASTRICK ON SATURDAY 25TH OCTOBER 2014! by Kaia Clarke

I woke up feeling really excited because I knew that I would be playing in my first Boobs and Brass concert, not only that but also with Brighouse and Rastrick!  We got up relatively early (we being Mum and I), about 9.00am which is early for me on a Saturday morning!  We travelled to Huddersfield on the band bus, it took about 3 hours.  When we got there, we took our instruments out of the bus and went into the town hall. 

We all ventured through the grand halls until we reached our private dressing room (well, private with all the other girls from the band!)!!!! I felt like a celebrity!  We then went into rehearsal before B&R arrived and then we did a massed band rehearsal. 

After that, Mum and I went to get some food; after eating a very yummy meal (and a sneaky look around New Look), we headed back to the town hall.  I got assigned my own pink jacket which I love, and then got changed ready to go on stage.  After what seemed like forever, we went on stage and performed a few massed band pieces before B&R exited; and Boobs and Brass were left centre stage!  We played a series of pieces including Lord of The Dance which was accompanied by Chloe, a professional Irish dancer – she was amazing! 

After an interval, Brighouse and Rastrick performed some pieces on their own; then we all came back together for a spectacular finale!  The bus left for home at 11pm and I slept most of the way back.  It was one of the best days of my life so far, and I will definitely treasure the memories!
