"A video taped stage performance is just - you know, it's never gonna be the same as it is if you're sitting there live in the theatre" Nathan Lane
We hear you Nathan. But sometimes it is nice to remind ourselves that the sight of a Brass Band playing is compelling and performances include interaction with the environment. This old video of Fairlop illustrates that premise. Lots of things going on here from the mixed attention of the audience to the irony of 'Summertime' played on an overcast afternoon. The video is a 2012 clip of the band playing at Valentines Mansion Summer Fayre with Mark Wheeler playing the solo on his Soprano Cornet.
