Pink Ladies keep believing

The fantastic Boobs & Brass ladies are carrying on the fight against breast cancer — and you can help them keep believing too...

Boobs and brass

 

The fantastic Pink Ladies off Boobs & Brass continue to help raise thousands of pounds for the fight against breast cancer — and have joined forced with composer Mike Kilmartin to further boost their campaign.

New music

Mike told 4BR: "During a recent rehearsal with the band, I was asked by conductor Mark Walters and several of the 'Boobies' if I would consider arranging some music specifically for them.

I had a number of tunes in mind so I decided to ask the girls to vote for which piece they would like.

Their choice was 'Don't Stop Believin' by the famous rock band Journey, which has been used in the hit television show 'Glee'.

My wife thought that this would be the perfect encore for the band, as we both thought it rather summed up the belief in the fight — and that one day there will be cure against the terrible disease."

Donated

All the royalties from the sale of Mike's splendid arrangement will be donated to Boobs & Brass.
