An all-female brass band will be appearing on TV next week after completing a task set by one of the stars of dance group Diversity.

Boobs and Brass, which was set up by two members of the Rushden Town Band, were set the daunting challenge of learning a dance routine choreographed by Ashley Banjo from Diversity.

Six members of the group completed the task and cameras from the Sky 1 show Ashley Banjo’s Secret Street Crew followed their progress over a three weeks.

Co-founder Maggie Betts said: “It was a fantastic, brilliant experience even if at times we struggled with the routine. But also we were not allowed to tell anybody, it was so hard to keep tight-lipped.”

Camera crews followed the ladies until their surprise performance, to Christina Aguilera’s Aint No Other Man, at St Andrew’s Church, Lindsay Street, Kettering, in July last year.

Mrs Betts was joined by Jane Nichols, Suzy Dawson, Mairi Addy, Paula Nicholson and Melanie Bones.

The show will be aired at 7pm on Sunday, April 28, on Sky 1. The group, who call each other the ‘Boobies,’ and train in Raunds, has raised more than £100,000 for charity since its creation.
