Zep Session

The young members of the Usk Youth Brass Band recently launched their first CD entitled, 'Now In Session' at an invitation cheese and wine event in the famous magistrates Sessions House in Usk.

Gaol

The Court Room there is unchanged since 1877 with an impressive judge’s chair and the benches retaining their original labels for Counsel, Solicitors, Reporters and Jury. Below the dock is the passageway that once led to Usk Gaol next door.

Best behaviour

Thankfully the band and players were well behaved over the Whitsun weekend plating 16 tracks on the CD ranging from traditional brass band pieces to a version of the classic rock anthem 'Stairway to Heaven' by Led Zeppelin.

'This is the first CD the Band has produced in its 40 year history, so we’re all very excited. It is hard to believe that it is a youth band production, we are all very proud of the youngsters' ~ Jeff Jones

Proud

Conductor Jeff Jones told 4BR: "This is the first CD the Band has produced in its 40 year history, so we’re all very excited. It is hard to believe that it is a youth band production, we are all very proud of the youngsters."

4BR will be reviewing the CD in the next week or so.
