    Great to see some new faces this year, but also interesting to see the bands who are not on the list - Stannington in particular, but also Rockingham, Barnsley BS, Strata, Emley and Old Silkstone to name a few. Was it a shortage of dates or lack of interest on their part, and if the latter, I wonder why? This is such a fantastic concert season (both from a playing and spectating point of view). Long may it continue. :clap:

    Is this picking up on Tim's earlier suggestion for an evening of all the area test pieces 4th to Champ?

    Did you know that Dronfield are taking part in the Yorkshire areas this year? ;)

    It's a pity that so many bands missed out this year, mostly because of how popular it is, the dates get booked so quickly after the first announcement. I had conversations with many of the bands you listed, but we couldn't find a free date that suited. But I'm really hoping they'll be back in 2012. It's also grea to see new bands at the club this year, Hade Edge and Yorkshire Imps are going to be fantastic concerts I'm sure.

    The seed was definitely planted by tim's comments previously. great idea, and this is the one year we didn't have a band booked in on that date. We're really pleased to have Deepcar already booked for the 4th section on the 27th, and we've already got some possible interest for the 2nd section. Would have loved to have dronfield - especially after their spectacular and deserved win at Butlins, but there are so many friends of the band club, it's impossible to include everyone. unfortunately.
    Just hope to see you all there on the grand opening on the 6th :)

    Ok, nearly there, tomorrow night (Sunday 6th Feb) is the opening night of the band club.

    A fantastic band in place, some top class soloists and a really enjoyable programme.

    It's looking to be a very popular one so come along and enjoy the music and the atmosphere. Let's start off what's looking to be a great band club season with a cracker.

    Concert starts at 8pm.

    Great start to the new band club last Sunday, capacity audience, and a fantastically enjoyable concert. The atmosphere was amazing.

    If you were unfortunate enough to miss it, this Sunday (13th Feb) we welcome Hade Edge who have been newly promoted to the Championship Section. I'm sure their MD Simon Wood has got a great concert planned.

    One of the vital roles of the band club is to encourage younger bands and players. Tonight is the turn of the Scisset Youth Band under their MD Simon Mansfield. I missed them last year due to work unfortunately so I'm looking forward to tonight's concert.

    Hectic couple of week..

    27th Feb saw a fantastic crowd for the regionals preview night. A real success. Many thanks to all the bands that took part, and to our last minute adjudicator Mike Rowley who did a brilliant job.

    The Yorkshire Area last week saw some great results for friends of City of Sheffield Band, including Chapeltown, Barnsley Chronical, Knottingley and Strata. We got a very satisfying 3rd place ourselves.

    Special congratulations to:
    Dronfield for their 2nd place in the 4th Section
    South Yorkshire Police for their Win in the 2nd Section
    Yorkshire Imps for 2nd Place in the 1st Section

    That's three really great bands and MDs from our 2011 band club season off to the National Finals. And you've still got their band club concerts to look forward to...

    Tonight sees the return of Thurlstone Brass Band, who have shown us some great young talent over recent years. See you all there.
