Andy Kitson - Tenbury Town Band

When did you start the band?

I joined the band in 2003 (I think). My son, Joe, who was learning to play alto sax had been invited to join the band. Keith Colwell very quickly found out that I’d played trombone as a child and insisted that I joined in immediately, despite a 20 year break!

Dressing in swimming gear and performing as a synchronized swimmer to the music of ‘Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy’ – thanks to Mel.

Meeting my wife, Julie.

Pont du Casse x 2 , Disneyland Paris, Durrington

Dave Brubeck and James Bond Selections. Count Basie.
