The band’s trip to Germany was supported by the Musicians’ Benevolent Fund – B & P won their Ensembles and Groups Award and this supported the costs of travel.

Beats & Pieces were winners from an initial field of sixty bands. The other finalists were from Germany, Austria and Denmark. Their performance – as support for Chick Corea and Gary Burton, was recorded for later transmission on national TV in Germany.
