Bradford Accordion Band’s recent sell out concert at Bingley Arts Centre raised over £2,500 for the Alzheimer’s charity. It was decided to support this charity following the death of one of its former members to the disease earlier this year.
The band was joined on stage by Bradford caberet singers ‘Encore’ and Halifax dance troup ‘Bazzmattazz‘ who each added their own talented performances to provide an entertaining evening. Read what the audience said here.
It’s official! BAB is celebrating its 20th Anniversary in 2017 and in order to mark the occasion, we will be performing alongside some very special guests in a Variety Show entitled “Rock Around The Clock – A Trip Down Memory Lane” with all proceeds donated to Alzheimer’s Society.
