Pennine Brass band have ceased to exist! "The decision has been based on the belief that at a time with many bands struggling for dedicated players, all those involved with the band would prefer Pennine Brass to be remembered for its achievements, and as a band that knew when it was time to call it a day. Real shame Pete Denton, the band’s Chairman, told 4BR: “It’s a real shame that we have had to make this decision. By calling time now it gives our players and our Musical Director time to find new bands before next year’s Areas and the people who have booked us for engagements time to make alternative arrangements.” Pete added: “Huw Thomas, our MD, has worked extremely hard with the band since we appointed him in April. I am sure I speak for everyone concerned in wishing him well in his future. He is a very talented musician and I’m sure he will do well with any band that is lucky enough to engage him.” Thanks The band has extended its thanks to all former players and the two former Musical Directors, Paul Fligg and Ian Porthouse, without whom they believe the band would not have been originally formed nor progressed to the standard it finally achieved." - Courtesy 4BR - Another Hudds top section band dissapears, where are all the players going?
