Whitehall wakes up with Fulham Brass
Fulham Brass Band recently featured in the ‘Father’s Day Special’ on BBC One with Jack Whltehall. Screened on 19th June, the programme showcased the band, adhering to social distancing measures, perform ‘The Dambusters’ as the comedian pranked his father with this unique wake-up call.
The band arrived on the back of a flat-back outside Michael Whitehall's home in Putney, where accompanied by Jack on cymbals they performed an impromptu rendition of the march at 6am, unsurprisingly to the annoyance of Jack’s father. Band Manager, Jonti Smith stated, "It was great fun and a new challenge to be involved in socially distanced filming, with the added bonus of getting meet and play together again."
