Congratulations were definitely in order again last month as Usk Band horn players Marcus and Helen tied the knot becoming husband and wife. Marcus has grown up in the band and has played a variety of instruments where as Helen joined the band a couple of years ago from Cwmbran Band.
It's been a busy couple of years for them as they have recently bought a house and also welcomed a new addition to the family, baby Oliver.
As banding plays such a big part in their lives, it was only fitting that they had a brass band playing in the church for the wedding. Several Usk Band players were joined by other musicians from some of the best bands in the region, all conducted by Marcus's cousin Jamie. Even Usk's musical director Jeff (Marcus's uncle), dusted off the valves of his horn and could be seen playing in the ensemble!!!
On behalf of everyone associated with Usk Band, we would like to wish Mr & Mrs Edmunds our heartiest congratulations and a very happy and prosperous future.
