I cannot tell whether this was somewhat informally recorded or if it was local television coverage, but the music is what matters: an incomplete WHEN YOU’RE SMILING, introduction of the band members, BLUE MONK (faded out), CHATTANOOGA CHOO CHOO, (again faded out):
When, last year, I asked Joep Peeters, the excellent altoist [who evokes both Cap’n John Handy and Pete Brown here], for information on this video, he graciously replied, “The tuba player is John Rijnen and the drummer is Jan-Willem van Zwol. The Terneuzen Festival was a yearly event with lots of music and lots of fun. That year we decided to be the world’s smallest brassband. But we had to leave Breda around 8 am and start at 11.00 am. So what you see is not our “Finest Hour” (Churchill). It’s the start of a day that lasted till 2 am!”
They surely sound fine to me — with a rocking momentum that belies the early hour.
May your happiness increase!
