Saturday night is all right for: The Marcus Reynolds Big Band - Brass, Wind and Fire

Saturday night is all right for: The Marcus Reynolds Big Band - Brass, Wind and Fire ! On Saturday 29th January, in two wonderful sets the people of Market Harborough were treated to mambo, bossa nova and swing from 1960s Latin America. Think "The Girl from Ipanena" and "Mambo Italiano". At least twenty amateur but very talented local musicians played trumpets, and sax with a solid backing of bass & rhythm guitars and piano. To give an idea of the high standard the guitarist with pop star Joss Stone came directly from Brass, Wind and Fire. Three vocalists sang along with the band which really added to the occasion; the experience of dancing within a few feet of the singer as she moved in front of the saxophones was really special. The band leader Marcus gave a performance full of vim and panache even though he had been released from hospital just a day earlier. On top of all this a packed Congregational Hall was served fish and chips which hot and really delicious - mushy peas too ! The music ranged from the Beatles "Twist and Shout" to Paolo Nutini which indicates the fabulous variation in style Brass, Wind and Fire achieved. The evening ended with tracks from the disco era which brought nearly everyone to their feet and packed the dance floor.
