Brass Bands, just like many other arts organisations have been greatly impacted by the strict social distancing guidelines imposed by the Covid crisis. The Devon Hotel New Plymouth Brass in New Zealand came up with an innovative way to keep their members, past and present playing music, this time in a 'virtual band'. Listen to the band, complete with Andrew Stone from the Darwin City Brass Band on Eb Tuba, all playing their parts of the famous march 'Colonel Bogey'. Here is the end result of this project. https://www.facebook.com/NewPlymouthBrass/videos/1790581244415289/
