With just one week to go until our first concert of the year, we are delighted to introduce another new member of the band! 🎶

We would like to welcome Mike on third cornet! Mike joined Allerton Brass last summer and is a fantastic addition to the back row! 🎺

A little about Mike: “I’ve been playing the trumpet since the age of 8, and spent my youth playing in various wind bands in school and in the Saturday Morning Music School in Liverpool playing with the Senior Brass and Jazz Bands. When I went to uni at the age of 18, I studied Music Technology and concentrated my playing on guitar and the trumpet took a bit of a back seat! I then played in various bands in Liverpool where it would make an occasional appearance, but the music I was making focused more around electronic, rock or pop music. In 2022 when I moved house, I found my trumpet looking cold and lonely and decided we needed to be mates again, and last year got in touch with Mike about coming down for a play, and the rest, as they say, is history!”

We are absolutely thrilled to have Mike in the band and are very excited for him to be playing with us in our next concert ‘The Best of Stage and Screen’ at the Tung Auditorium! 🎭🎬 Get your tickets now:
