Birthday Boys

Sunday 11th November and half way through the band’s WW1 Remembrance “Battle’s Over” concert in the Askern Miners Welfare Club, we took time out to celebrate a brace of recent milestone birthdays.

Vintage cornetist Mick Kennedy and the evergreen Blonde Bombshell Roberto Brown have both just crossed the 60th birthday threshold. Rob invited members to join him for a celebratory buffet and it was here that MD Stan Lippeatt grabbed his chance to present them both with a small token gift of liquid sustenance on behalf of the band. Candles were lit and cakes were cut, but it came as a surprise when neither player had the wind to extinguish the flames!Happy birthdays boys, may you have many more, and blow for years to come. Salut!
