The United Kingdom - April, 2017 Hercules Stands are proud to announce the new partnership with the Brighouse & Rastrick Band. Alongside the current Band and players that recorded The Floral Dance 40 years ago, eagle eyed supporters in the audience would have noticed that Brighouse and Rastrick have replaced their aging music stands, launching a strategic partnership with Hercules Stands. With double the number of stands required for the concert, Brighouse and Rastrick were quick to contact the leading company for stands and following initial discussions it was clear that working together would benefit both organisations. Robin Crocker, UK Product Development Manager for Hercules Stands commented, ‘Hercules stands are truly delighted to be working with the world famous Brighouse and Rastrick brass band. Since first becoming available in the UK in 2001 Hercules stands have strived to develop and improve its range of products. This has been achieved largely by working with the very top professional musicians and bands globally. The feedback and technical analysis that such players provide to us is invaluable when providing musicians of all abilities with products they can trust and rely on. I am very excited at this development and look forwards to developing a close working relationship with the musicians of the Brighouse and Rastrick brass band’. Hercules Stands have provided a full set of Symphony Music Stands (BS200B) that will remain in the band room and a full set of collapsible stands (BS118B) that will be used for all concerts. This meant that the Band not only had enough stands for the Floral Dance Reunion concert but raises the profile and image of the Band when on the concert stage. Band spokesman Ryan Watkins said, “This is an absolutely fantastic partnership for the Band. Robin was so kind to travel up from Kent to meet us at the band room and the passion demonstrated for the Hercules brand and range of products meant that this is definitely the right kind of partner for us.” Brighouse and Rastrick are now looking at other products in the Hercules Stands range and will work with Hercules Stands with product development and the introduction of new innovating products that will hopefully find their way into band rooms up and down the country and further afield.
