Boobs & Brass break the £100,000 barrier!

On Saturday 6th of October the ladies from the Northamptonshire based ‘Boobs and Brass’ visited East Lancashire and presented a joint concert with the ‘2nd Rossendale Scout Group Band’ at The Hub in Bacup.

The concert raised in excess of £4000 on the night for the charities supported by the band and this brings to over £100,000 the amount of money raised by them since they were formed in 2006, quite a remarkable achievement.

The band’s two CDs can be purchased from our online shop at www.musichouseproductions.co.uk/music_shop.html

A Bit on the Slide – MHP 1710

We have recently received a copy of the review in the ‘Conductor’ magazine of our recent CD ‘A Bit on the Slide’, the solo album by Simon Johnson the Principal Trombone with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.

The magazine is published by the National Association of Brass Band Conductors and the review includes phrases such as “just brilliant“, “well engineered” and “virtuosic” and concludes “I found it difficult to believe it was all recorded on the one weekend. But with a professional like Simon Johnson – no problem..I loved this disc.”
