Tall Ships Day Two

It's the first time I've heard the Tyne Valley Big Band. Bigger than the SSBB and unbelievably well turned out for such a hot day. A better performance than by some professional bands with some fantastic solos. 
Lost for words to say how good they were 
Sorry pic from the mobile phone does not show much of the band but just lots of happy punters.
