Brenda’s Brats bring the bright side to stage

Brenda’s Brats drove away the rain and dark clouds Saturday, May 3 with a pair of cheerful concerts entitled The Bright Side of Life.

Welcoming audiences to a space they are continuing to make their own at Pioneer Square in Mill Bay, the tuneful South Enders presented everything from Teenager in Love to English choral music guru John Rutter’s hilarious Banquet Fugue, ending with Eric Idle’s Always Look on the Bright Side of Life from Monty Python.

They also welcomed their bursary winner, Hailey Hiles, to the keyboard to accompany them in that old campfire favourite, Found a Peanut in a show that even included blues and flamenco. Olé!
