BANDSTAND FIRST
Three weeks later, on 29th, there is a fascinating 'first' on the tarmac above the Half Moon, where the real bandstand once stood, when Nigel Gotteri contributes an organ recital. (Rumour has it Phil Fluke may have something to do with it.) Other top  performers this month are:
Hall Royd Brass Band (1st),
Hot Aire (The Coolest Band Around) (15th)
