Bring on the trumpets

THIS Friday (October 14) will be a special occasion for local musician Adrian Boardman.

Adrian came up with a brilliant idea to get some of the area’s finest talent together to form the big band Dizzy Hack and the Rhino Horns.

Now the 18-piece group is just days away from its finest hour, a live gig headlining at The Platform in Morecambe.

Adrian is perhaps best known as a trumpet player in legendary soul band The Devious Soul Machine and more recently in The Reggie Mental Band.

“Aside from his commitments with these bands Adrian has also been involved in many brass bands and swing bands,” said band mate Andy Creevy.

“It was this experience that afforded him the knowledge to combine all of this into his own big band.”

Formed in 2009, the band was resident initially at the now defunct Venue on Morecambe Promenade and plays the last Tuesday of the month at the Bowerham Hotel in Lancaster.
