The Band enjoyed a week of sell-out performances of “Brassed Off” in 2016 and are delighted to be welcomed back to the Theatre to perform once again.
With over 30 regular members, the Band is currently enjoying a highly successful and enjoyable period both on the concert and competition stages. Roger is accustomed to blending his style of music with the Brass Band genre, having worked with Brighouse & Rastrick Band on his track “Brighouse on a Saturday Night”, as well as recently in concert with Drighlington Band and Skelmanthorpe Prospect Band. Last year he also enjoyed a 30-gig sell-out tour supporting the iconic group, Fairport Convention and has performed across the UK. He is currently in the studio working on his latest album and single. The Halifax Courier wrote………… “When Roger walked on stage to a sold out Square Chapel, it quickly became obvious why this self-styled “Yorkshire Songwriter” commands such a strong following. His songs are a reflection of the world around us. His lyrics can be funny, thought provoking, or simply exquisite”. Band Musical Director, Graham Bates, first met Roger a couple of years ago. “I was instantly impressed by Roger’s straightforward lyrics and music which blends so well with the sound of a Brass Band. His concerts give a real “feel good factor” – and he’s a lovely bloke too!”.
