Do you all know about the Portsmouth Sinfonia?

 

There's lots more! The only rule was that you could not perform on an instrument that you could actually play.

On a different note put up a Greenhouse in one day (i've been looking at the kit for a month). Apparently you grow plants in them 🙂

Well done but there are enough different notes in the symphony thank you.😁

QC and the Sunshine Band.

 

Music played with a light meter. If I'm playing we wouldn't want too much exposure.

Ah, but ideally the name of the band should suggest the type of music

 

'Chromatic abberation' 

 

experimental electronic music similar to Kraftwerk?

 

 

The 'Wide Angles' are an acoustic Celtic folk band.

 

'Circles of Confusion' I have as 1960s psychedelia

I need to be in the right mood, with the right amount of patience, the lack of it is a shortcoming of mine.

 

 

My shortcoming, too.

I don't play anything now, but I used to play trumpet, trap drums, standup bass, Spanish guitar, sing, and I'm a composer. So I guess I'll be the conductor. Has anybody got one of those little stick to wave about? If everyone agrees that I should be in total charge, we should call the band The Ed Rooney Symphonic Jazz Orchestra.

The Roonettes? I like the sound of that. But maybe, because we might try one or two classical pieces, it should be The Edward P. Roonettes?
