THE Royal British Legion (RBL)  were in the brass, ‘Just Brass’ in fact, with the assistance of JB Brass Band, under the direction of Jane Illingworth.

More than 300 people attended the outdoor concert held in the beautiful outdoor setting of the Olympia Restaurant in Mil Palmeras to raise funds for The Royal British Legion.

The event was hosted by the President of the Orihuela Costa and District Branch, Pastor Keith Brown alongside band compere Ian Gibson who, with his own brand of humour, guided the audience through the sessions of military marches, traditional British and Spanish standards, as well as music from the classics, theatre and films.

The band shared the bill with the Francisca Samper Flamenco Troupe who took to the stage with their own very emotional style of dance which proved that there was absolutely no need to speak the language to get drawn into their captivating performances.

The event itself raised almost €1,800 for the Royal British Legion thanks to the hard work of many Branch members and it is certainly an evening that must be repeated in the future, which many of those attending saying that the combination of the two very different types of entertainment was perfect.

‘Just Brass’ include in their ranks players from many of the top UK brass bands, including Black Dyke and Fodens, with two players from Brighouse and Rastrick and The Faireys Brass bands travelling out from England just for the night.
