Remembering Bruce

In the past week we sadly lost one of our very best

Lambeth Wind Orchestra chose to remember Sir Bruce Forsyth at Clapham Common by performing a song made famous by his US counterpart Sammy Davis Junior: “Sweet Gingerbread man”. Bruce and Sammy performed together a few times in their career, and there are plenty of other parallels to draw from the two, as all-round showmen, presenters, and crooners. Absolutely irreplaceable.

Two videos from this concert at Clapham Common on Sunday, “Bandology” and “Symphonic Beatles” are now on the video section of the Gallery page.

Symphonic Beatles


Thanks to the fine folks from the Clapham Society, the Clapham Common Management Advisory Commitee (CCMAC) and the London borough of Lambeth for making this bandstand performance possible. Much Appreciated.

We are performing next on Sunday 10th September at the Herne Hill Music Festival at the Market Bandstand between 11 AM and midday, and again on Saturday 23rd September at the Marchmont Street Party from midday.
