An enthusiastic crowd turned up to Montrose Town Band’s summer concert last Friday, celebrating 120 years of the band in the town.

Bandmaster Jim Easton (pictured on the right) led the band in rousing performances of music from 1900 up to 2009, and compere Joe Wishart stylishly entertained the audience with his flamboyant and witty introductions.

An unexpected highlight of the evening, was when the Band played ‘Happy Birthday’, as Joe presented a cake, complete with candles, to celebrate band member, Hamish Murray’s, 18th birthday, which was on the same night.
