On Friday 23rd May 2014 Northampton Concert Band attended their first School Prom.

Northampton Concert Band was delighted to be invited to perform for the 6th Form leavers of Bishop Stopford School, Kettering at their end of year prom which was held at Sywell Aerodrome.

The band welcomed the young revelers to the black tie event in Hanger One with music from the movies and later provided a selection of big band numbers that proved very popular.

Despite the high level of excitement the students were very well behaved and appreciative. The band finished their set, quite aptly - considering the location, with the march from The Dam Busters.

The evening was organised and co-ordinated by Jayantilal, a special events planning company. Priya Thanki, director for Jayantilal, said; “Northampton Concert Band were truly wonderful to work with - a hidden gem within the Northamptonshire entertainment scene. A fantastic sound with a great repertoire. We can't wait to book them again!

If you have a special event and would like to book the band to play for you and your guests please see our Book Us page.
