 Prague 1996    

The Band travelled to Prague in the Czech Republic in April 1996. During the week's tour it gave concerts in several venues, including the Skoda Auto Museum in Mlada Boleslav, the Fakultni Nemocnice Hospital in Prague, the Staropramen Brewery (!!) and the town of Kolin. Kolin is the location for an annual brass band festival (Kmoch's Kolin) celebrating the famous Bohemian brass-band conductor and composer Frantisek Kmoch (1848-1912) whose music played a large part in the national revival.
