The ever-popular Brighouse & Rastrick Band boast a formidable reputation: in its time the majority of premier band championships have been held by ‘Briggus’, most recently becoming 2022 British Open and Brass in Concert Champions.

They caught the ears and imagination of the British public in 1977 with their recording of The Floral Dance, holding the No.2 position in the British singles chart for 9 weeks. Even though they were held off the top spot by Paul McCartney, they still achieved sales of over a million copies, earning both Gold and Silver discs. The Floral Dance has now become a permanent feature of the band’s programs as the ‘unofficial’ encore.

Over recent years the band has been engaged in a number of very successful music collaborations outside the brass band tradition, including Kate Rusby, BBC Radio 2 Folk award winners The Unthanks and classical actor Simon Callow.

A stylized treatment of the iconic album artwork from Fleetwood Mac's album Rumours. Mick Fleetwood - a man with a healthy beard and moustache, hair in a short ponytail, and wearing a buttoned waistcoat over a white shirt - stands with one leg up on a small stool. He is holding out a crystal ball and gazing into it. There are two wooden balls hanging between his legs. Stevie Nicks - a woman with long hair and wearing a long flowing dress - is also staring intently into the crystal ball while billowing her cape out. The image is in black and white against a sepia-coloured background.
