About Peter

A versatile musician from a military backround. Playing everything from Big Band to Baroque on Trumpet and (yes!) Tuba. Bands available too.
Public liability insurance of £2 million

I am a versatile musician from a military background, being a member of the Royal Artillery Band from 1959 - 1969 playing trumpet and 'cello. The band was twice, personally requested, to play for the queen in the grounds of Buckingham Palace and made several appearances at Military Tattoos e.g Edinburgh - Earls Court and county shows etc. During that time I studied for twelve months at Kneller Hall, the Royal Military School of Music. As a member of the fanfare team I played for an historical TV show about WW2 presented by General Sir Brian Horrocks. I have sounded the Last Post and Reveille at gatherings all around the British Army of the Rhine and UK, most importantly at Winchester - Salisbury and Norwich Cathedrals for not only Military Parades but also, since leaving the service, for: The Royal British Legion, The Royal Artillery Association, The Royal Anglians, The Far Eastern Prisoner of War Association, The Spirit of Coltishall Association and The Royal Air Force Association. I have played in Dance Bands around the Norwich area for many years, laterly with the Pavilion Big Band covering music from the late 20's to the 60's and more. The Tuba has introduced yet another branch of music, playing in the Norwich City Concert Band and my Brass Quintet, The Wensum Valley Brass Quintet. The quintet can cover all occasions from funerals, church services, weddings, banquets and 'official' openings etc. etc. - we play music from the Baroque to the Beatles and more! The line up of instrumentation for the quintet is, two Trumpets - French Horn - Trombone and Tuba.

We could not have asked for a more fitting send-off for my Father’s funeral where Peter played the Last Post, as my Father was ex-RAF. Peter was the consummate professional and handled the entire event flawlessly with great empathy. Would highly recommend.

Peter was so helpful and all the family was very grateful for his help.

Two buglers booked by mistake! The family booked one and the Funeral Directors also booked one. A problem quickly resolved and the family were happy with the outcome and most appreciative.

Peter was able to accommodate our needs at very short notice and brought a sombre but uplifting moment to the whole funeral.

Many thanks to you and the Quintet for setting the scene so well at our celebration on Saturday . It was very much appreciated and the right choice of music for the occasion. Looking forward to seeing you in September, Bernard
