Group Photo at 3-County Fair

It’s hard to capture this Expandable and E-X-P-A-N-D-I-N-G Brass Band all in one photo. Here’s one of the best group photos taken in a while. We were playing at the Tri-County Fair in Northampton on Sunday August 31, 2014. EBB_Marie_2014Fair

Our thanks to Marie Paige, our faithful “band mother,” for this photo.
