Performances of Neil Brand's Score for the Laurel and Hardy Comedy "You're Darn Tootin'"

Jun. 01, 2021

Neil Brand's score to the Laurel and Hardy comedy You’re Darn Tootin' was given three performances by the Stane Street Sinfonietta last month, heralding a return to live concerts by the Sussex-based chamber orchestra under their conductor, Steve Dummer.

You're Darn Tootin' is a 1928 film by the iconic duo and sees Stan and Ollie as members of a municipal band, struggling to follow their unpredictable conductor's lead. Jettisoned from the band, the out-of-work instrumentalists take to performing their music in the street. However, a series of disagreements results in utter chaos throughout the neighborhood, culminating in the famous pant-ripping scene.

Neil Brand's twenty-minute accompaniment is scored for a band of ten musicians (clarinet, five brass, ukulele/banjo, piano, bass and drums). It was originally premiered at the 2005 Bristol Slapstick Festival following a commission from comedian, Paul Merton. Neil Brand joined the orchestra on the platform to introduce the three shows from St Mary's Church, Horsham.
