Shortly after the bands first appearance at the National Concert Band Festival, we undertook a recording of some of the music we had been playing at the time, as well as other music from the repertoire.

The recording had a certain ‘BBC’ influence, with no fewer than three ex BBC sound engineers on the team (including our MD, Chris McGinity), and an ex BBC Radio Outside Broadcast vehicle providing technical facilities. The recording took place at Christ Church in Watford, which provided an excellent acoustic.

The results can be heard on our first CD, ‘Phoenix Fiesta’ and can be bought direct from us for just £7.50 – just see our contacts page.
