Six-month-old Dalmatian, Purdy, was startled at first, but then became inquisitive as the band began to play in Porthleven, Cornwall.

Purdy's owner, India Rogers, shot the video, which has racked up over 900,000 views on the social media platform.

India, 26, from Helston, Cornwall, said: "Purdy wasn't really used to the band. It's the first time he’s seen anything like that.

"He doesn’t bat an eyelid to fireworks. The video has been liked by some big brass bands - even the band in The Greatest Showman!"

India, a saleswoman, was visiting Porthleven, Cornwall, with her family for the weekend when the brass band struck up.
