‘A Journey through Jazz’ concert of the Band of the Royal Logistic Corps

We were in the audience for the concert by the Band of Royal Logistic Corps Band concert, ‘A Journey through Jazz’, on the 28th September 2017, at the Tela Theatre, Princess Royal Barracks, Deepcut.

The Band’s Director of Music, Maj Lauren Peritz-Watts, requested the audience not to post any videos, to YouTube or Facebook, they may have taken of the concert before the Band had posted their own video. Being a respectful soul I’ve obliged the Band, and waited patiently for them to post their video – shown below.

The Bandmaster, SSgt Jonathan Spencer, spoke to the audience of their privilege to host one of the finest lead trumpet players in the country, Louis Dowdeswell, as guest soloist. Before the video, from the concert, of the Band and Loius Dowdeswell playing ‘Let it Go’, from Disney’s Frozen, here are a few photos of the concert.

It’s a terrific band, and this concert, like all others of their concerts, was hugely entertaining. The guest soloist was an added treat.

Surrey Police Band concert series at St Barbara’s Garrison Church

Concert bands are popular, attested by the audience appreciation for the Royal Logistic Corps Band [RLC], and the Surrey Police Band. Both perform in Deepcut, the RLC at the Tela theatre inside Princess Royal Barracks, and the Surrey Police Band at the Garrison Church of St Barabara’s.

The Surrey Police Band has announced their concert series for 2017 at St Barbara’s Church on their smart new website. SEE HERE for concert dates. Concerts sell out quickly, so worth booking well ahead of the concert performance. The next band concert is,

A concert of music from stage and screen by the Royal Logistic Corps Band & Corps of Drums

Last Friday we were in the Tela Theatre at Princess Royal Barracks, Deepcut to listen to a Band and Corps of Drums of the Royal Logistic Corps concert. The concert was An Evening of Music from Stage and Screen.

We’ve been to a number of similar concerts by the RLC Band. Always a delight to have the company of Chelsea Pensioners. This evening’s concert programme suited the band, and you could sense their enjoyment in the playing the programme. The Band has 12 working ensembles, including a traditional marching band, show band, big band, brass quintets, saxophone quartet, acoustic and rock groups,” and many more.

The big band concert repertoire was especially fine, and much enjoyed by the audience, as was the performance of the Corps of Drums. I do recommend keeping an eagle eye open for future concerts. They’re free, but they’re ticketed and you’ll need to book, call 01252 833744, email bandrlc-ao@mod.uk [click on images to expand]
