Poynton Commodores X-Factor Report

| |

The Commodores and the Commodore Cadets braved the cold and wet today to play a welcome for the Mayor and the Judges of X Factor to Salford. It was really exciting being behind the scenes as they filmed the Manchester Auditions. The X Factor crew were great to work with. We played in a fab setting behind the Lowry Hotel where the suspension bridge crosses the canal. Our brass stood on the steps with the drums arced behind them on the bridge, the pit and the guard were right next to the platform with the judges and the Mayor. The crowd cheered us on as we played the X factor theme tune and we then went on to play Appalachian Morning. We were delighted that Simon took the time to talk to the kids and shake their hands! We were then filmed again for the Extra Factor with Fearne Cotton and the Mayor! A lot of fun and another great memory for us.
