We think the band were aware of a few little slip ups at yesterdays Regional Finals in Swansea’s Brangwyn Hall, but to come off stage to a very happy, smiley musical director gave everyone a little boost in confidence and raised the bands hopes.
Having been drawn third to play, the band set to relax while the remainder of the 10 second section bands finished performing Eric Ball’s “Resurgam”.
However well any of us think we’ve played, it’s all down to the decision of one man at the end of the day. The little man in the tent was David Read and he wasn’t as pleased as some with the way that we’d performed. A slightly disappointing seventh place was awarded to Cross Keys.
As if one lot of bad news wasn’t enough, France beat Wales 28-9 in the final game of the 2011 Six Nations later that evening.
It always goes without saying, but any result encourage the band to practice harder and perform better and we hope to prove this at Ebbw Vale in May.
