It used to be all men performing in the brass band. There are several functions for the brass band : to play for celebrations organised by the Association;weddings; and funerals. Sometimes they perform for state functions too. So it is nice to see this lady beating the drum for the brass band. Kudos to her and her great spirits!
Here's a man blowing his lungs out...and enjoying his own trombone music...the 100 000 people around him at the World Foochow Banquet at East Wood recently only fanned his enthusiasm.
This saxophone player is not wearing his brass band uniform...he has come to play after he has been circulating around...his batik shirt indicates that he is a member of the organising committee. When you have to chose your attire which one would you choose if you were him?
I like the man playing the trumpet standing nearest to the camera....he must be tired standing all night long...hoped he had enjoyed some of the sumptious dinner spread out by the World Foochow Congress.
And their favourite tune? Rose Rose I love you.....or may be one of those happy cha cha number...I lost count because of the noise and the busyness.
