Watch Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Played by 28 Trombone Players!


September/October continues to be a celebration of all things Freddie and Queen related. September 5th was Mercury’s birthday and to honour the legend we’ve had an amazing display from The Ohio State Marching Band performed a selection of Queen songs during the halftime show earlier this month.

And this week sees the release of the story of Bohemian Rhapsody. ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ is the extraordinary story of Freddie Mercury, who became one of the most beloved entertainers in the world as Queen’s lead singer and legendary frontman.

Also, members of the baggage team at Heathrow airport along with British Airways colleagues performed a tribute at T5 Arrivals to one-time Heathrow baggage handler Freddie Mercury.

Now, 28 trombone players banded together at a Trombone festival and played Queen’s beloved 1975 hit, “Bohemian Rhapsody.” They call it, “Bonehemian Rhapsody!”
