A band with a difference! This 13 piece saxaphone band hail from the Canton of Thun in Switzerland. Some of you will know the pretty lake of that name – Interlaken, the gateway to the Bernese Oberland at one end, and the very pretty town of Spiez at the other – the whole lake overlooked by the summits of the Niederhorn and Niesen.
