The village (pop. a little under 5,000) has quite a good band (we think it’s good) but for major events, that really require two bands, perhaps because of the length of a procession, a band has been brought in from another location and, quite honestly, the quality has been far from what we are used to.  So it has been decided that we will have another band.  Instead of the range of instruments carried by the main band, the second band is, I believe, to comprise only drums and cornets (a sort of thump and toot band).  We hear them practising over at the school (almost a km away) almost every evening.  We haven’t yet encountered a public outing of the new band.
