Last Saturday the Spikerpakkenband performed their Mid Winter concert . Guest soloist was Lito Fontana, what a star he is ! It was Fantastico !
The band performed a mix of styles, and Lito played some inspiring solos: Fantastic Polka – Arthur Pryor (solo Lito) and Aristotles air – Christopher Bond: a duet for Lito and Frans de Haan our euphonium star.
The program after the break was:
Blackbird Special – Dirty Dozen Brassband; arr. Reid Gilje, Innuendo – Queen; arr. Peter Meechan, Brasilia – Robin Dewhurst and For a lost love – Tom Davoren both featuring Lito. The Lord d of the Rings: the fellowship of the Ring– H. Shore; arr. A. Duncan, Sinng Sing Sing – Louis Prima; arr. Dan Price, Ballkan Dance – Etienne Crauzas and as a encore: Libertango – Astor Piazzolla with Lito !
After the concert we had a cool afterparty in our bandroom and ofcourse Lito is added on the wall of fame !
